A female pedestrian was crushed on Thursday morning at Kara Bus Stop, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway by a container after it fell from a moving trailer. The trailer was heading out of Lagos around 7am when it lost one of its tyres, making the driver to lose control of the truck momentarily. Witnesses said that as he struggled to regain control of the truck, it tipped over to its right side. As the truck fell, it landed on the woman, who was walking beside the road, in search of a commercial bus to her destination. The unidentified woman was said to have died instantly while a gridlock formed on the outbound Lagos side of the busy expressway.
Two men were arrested with a human head this week. John Yakubu, 25, and Ishaya Dakulung, 30, were arrested along A.Y.A Junction of Asokoro District, Abuja, following a tip off. Both men confessed to the crime. Dakulung told journalists that he contacted Yakubu and offered him N250, 000 to get a fresh human head after he was approached by an unnamed person who wanted it for ritual purposes. Yakubu said he went back to his village, Angwa Galadima, in Nasarawa State, where he lured his neighbour’s child, 7-year-old Samu Danjuma, to a stream with a bread worth N20. There, he beheaded the boy and dumped his body in the stream; and returned to Abuja where he handed over the head to Dakulung.
