Some of the people who were still asleep in the building behind the shop were impacted by the damage caused by the crash.
Our correspondent was informed by eyewitnesses that the occupants suffered injuries of differing severity during the incident.
Sodiq Aderemi, an eyewitness, stated that the injured victims were laborers who were hired to work in the structure.
“When it got to this point and crashed into the shop, it was coming from the Council bus stop,” he stated. Everything in the store was destroyed. The residents of the building behind the store were laborers who were almost fifteen years old. They spend the day working in an incomplete structure on the property and spend the night there. Two of them passed out, and four of them had severe injuries. After some time, they were revived. While they were asleep, the fence’s bricks fell upon them.
Another resident, going by the name Abidemi, claimed that the car was stopped by an electric pole that had also sustained damage.
He stated, “If not for an electric pole that stopped it, the accident would have been fatal.” Thank goodness it didn’t occur while the store owner was inside and that it happened during the day. She and her husband came around, though, after she received a call this morning informing her that her shop had been destroyed. They went to the police station to report the incident.
The three people in the car were Adekunle Daisi, one of the residents, who intervened to stop him from fleeing. One was apprehended, but the other two managed to get away. He was transported back to the scene of the collision. Before they were stopped from doing so, a few enraged people intended to lynch him and set the car on fire. Later, he was made to accompany the hurt victims to the hospital, where he was instructed to cover their medical expenses.
A few victims who had minor injuries were also treated at the hospital before being released right away.
When our correspondent left the scene of the incident, the police had not yet arrived.
