By Esther Onyegbula & Ediri Michael

Tragedy struck, Friday, afternoon when a Sports Utility Vehicle, SUV, rammed into a large crowd of Muslim faithful, who where observing Jumat service, killing three people and injuring several others at Ajeromi/Ifelodun Local Government council premises, at about 1:45p.m.

It was learned that a popular woman politician, who had also come for prayers, drove the car.

According to an eyewitness, Tunji Jubril, “we were observing the Jumat prayers inside the council when she drove her car in. Usually, they do not allow people to bring in their vehicles on Friday during prayers, but I guess they allowed her because she is a politician and a very popular woman.

“Immediately after the prayers, she entered her vehicle. I guess she lost concentration and rammed into the people who were still praying.”
