by Oge Okonkwo


A newly wedded bride escaped death by the whiskers in an auto crash on her way from her wedding.

The accident was said to have occurred at about 4.45 pm on Saturday, involving an NNPC tanker, a cargo truck and two saloon cars, close to the Otedola bridge, Alausa, on Lagos/Ibadan Expressway.

A reporter who witness the accident said the NNPC truck, could not hold its break as it was descending the slope at top speed. The truck rammed into the first car, squashing the second one against the cargo truck.

According to reports:

The bride and her husband were said to have jumped out of their car.

When our reporter got to the scene of the accident, the groom was no where in sight. The groom’s elder sister who spoke to our reporter while cuddling her baby explained that they were just coming from the wedding reception of the couple.

She was seen kneeling down and thanking God for their escape but refused to give the name of the couple.

The fire coming out of the truck was put out by sympathisers as the tanker was carrying petroleum product. The accident also resulted in gridlock which was controlled by men of the Federal Road Safety Corps.
