A woman and a passenger in her Toyota Camry car would have died today (Wednesday) as she smashed her car against the wall of a building in Ibadan while trying to avoid crushing a MOTORCYCLIST. The incident happened along a main road leading to Bodija Market and the University of Ibadan
Thank God the driver and a young passenger in it were not injured but the car suffered extensive damage due to broken blocks of the fence that fell on its wind shield.
The Woman narrating how it happens: “We just left home and as Alhaja was joining the main road, the okada (commercial motorcycle) rider hit our car with a bang. He fell in front of the car and in a bid not to run the car over him and possibly kill him, Alhaja maneuvered the car away from the man and in the process, plunged into the house.
“I was shocked because we must have slid down seven feet with broken blocks smashing the windows and the windshield. We were rescued by passersby but before we climb out, the okada rider had escaped. He must have realised that he was guilty before taking the decision to run away,”
