The General Manager of Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Mr Adesina Tiamiyu, confirmed this to Channels Television on Tuesday.

He made the disclosure after a truck with an unknown registration number, conveying a huge load of plywood, swerved and poured its contents down the bridge.

The LASEMA boss also clarified that the truck did not fall off the bridge as reported earlier and that four other vehicles were involved in the accident.

He said, “As we are; three people died, two people injured.  Initially, two people died and after some time, one more person among those who are initially injured eventually died.”

“We got a call at about 8:25 pm from the call system that a truck fell of the bridge in Ojuelegba but when we got here, we discovered that a truck actually did not fall off the bridge but content at the back of the truck which are mainly plywood.

“Obviously overloaded and when it got to the bridge, it tilted and half of the content fell off the bridge and landed on top of four other vehicles – three yellow danfo (commercial) buses and a Toyota Corolla car,” Tiamiyu revealed.
