“A woman knocked another woman down at Ikeja under the bridge. Pretentiously, she took the woman to the hospital. By the time they got to the hospital, she was confirmed dead,” he said.
“Instead of her now to do what the law says she should do. An accident is a traffic offence which doesn’t have any criminal intention. Instead of her to report the case at a police station, she connived with her friend, they went to drop the corpse of the woman under the bridge at the way to Mowe there.

The woman, who identified herself as Anita while speaking to journalists, claimed that she was not sure if her vehicle had knocked the deceased down.
“I had an accident in Ikeja here. So I don’t even know if I was the one who hit the lady because she didn’t cross the road. I just heard people shouting, so I parked the car and everybody was just looking at her,” she said.

“The next thing, I told them to help her and I opened the vehicle. They helped me to put her in the vehicle and all of them were following me. They directed me to take her to a hospital around and I now took her there.
“The nurses came out and I asked them to come and check her. The nurses couldn’t say anything. The doctor later came out and confirmed that she was dead.”
