Adebola Ladoja, one of the sons of the former Governor of Oyo State, Senator Rasheed Ladoja, yesterday (May 29, 2014) lost his life in a ghastly auto crash in Lagos. The accident occurred on Eko Bridge.
According to a report by Chiemelie Ezeobi published in ThisDay, the deceased, who was driving a Golf saloon car with registration number AKD 107 CJ, was said to have been on his way to Lagos Island when a DAF truck, with registration number JJJ 59 XA ran into his car.
According to an eyewitness account, the driver of the truck, identified as Justice Osaghai, who was on top speed, lost control and rammed into the median of the bridge before it eventually ran into Ladoja’s car.
The victim died on the spot. The corpse has been moved to the Lagos Island General Hospital Mortuary for autopsy while the truck driver is in police custody.
