Hit & Run Police Driver Knocks Down Woman And Her Baby While Speeding Against Traffic
A reckless police driver behind the wheels of a van attached to the FESTAC police station allegedly knocked down this woman and her little baby on the 23rd of June, 2013.
Causing her to suffer brain damages while her baby, Ammarah Anjolaiya, also suffered deep facial cuts and a broken jaw.
Baby's picture is after the cut. Viewer's discretion is advised.
According to eye witnesses and the woman's family members, the police driver sped dangerously against the flow of traffic on a one-way lane along the busy Oshodi-Apapa Road, hitting down the unsuspecting woman and her baby.
Mrs. Taskirat Anjolaiya is currently receiving treatment at LUTH for her physical and mental injuries.
The police corporal seemed to act with drunken disregard for other road users.
“As he was driving, he was waving his hand and shouting at drivers who were driving the right way to clear out of the road,” the witness said.
“He kept driving that way until he eventually knocked down the woman coming out of the bus with her baby.”
Family sources said the badly injured woman and her baby were rushed to the emergency ward at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH).
Doctors reportedly discovered that she had sustained a pelvic fracture, facial bruises, and brain injury and her baby, deep facial cuts and a broken jaw.
A family source said Corporal Friday’s first concern at the scene of the accident was to immediately arrange a cab to convey the “madam” in his car to her destination.
He later provided the injured woman’s family with N70,000 for treatment but subsequently abandoned the victims at the hospital.
The family of the victim even had a shocking experience when they visited the FESTAC divisional police station to meet with the Divisional Police Officer, Ibrahim Zango, whose mistress was being taken to the airport at the time of the accident.
“DPO Zango spoke to us in a very rude manner before offering us additional ten thousand naira,” said one of the victim’s relatives. He added that the DPO said the woman being driven by the reckless police driver was “just a relative.”
