A 40ft container fell off a moving truck at Ilasa, along the Oshodi-Apapa expressway, landing on a commuter bus. Eight passengers, among them two staff of the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria, FAAN were killed while others who managed to jump out of the bus sustained varying degrees of injuries.
The mangled bodies of the victims were later removed after the container was lifted. Identities of the FAAN staff were: Ajoku Chidinma, 27, a graduate of Babcock University, Ogun State and one Chima. They had closed from work last Sunday and were on their way home when the unexpected occurred.
