The Daily Crucible | Thursday, May 5, 2022

A woman identified as Omotomi Akinsanya is in a critical condition in Accident and Emergency ward of Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja.

The woman is also in pains following grave injuries she dustained after a car rammed her right leg against a wall.

It was learnt that a Lebanese was driving the car on Victoria Island, Lagos State, when the incident happened and that he attempted to flee the scene but was caught and handed over to the police.

A Twitter user with the handle, wellzpapi, who disclosed this stated that the Lebanese man identified as John Greg drove recklessly against traffic on Sanusi Fafunwa Street, Victoria Island.


According to the Twitter user, the Lebanese  drove into Omotola and jammed her against a wall which led to serious injuries from her knee region downward.

"I just wonder what would make a white guy to drive on a one-way street on top speed in VI. He must think that he can get away with anything he does in Nigeria, or he can bribe anyone. This happened this morning.

“Please share and let it go viral so that they don’t release this white driver from the Victoria Island Police Station.
 
“The man was driving on a one-way road, against traffic and was on high speed around Sanusi Fafunwa Street, Victoria Island. People had to run helter-skelter for their lives. The driver then drove into Omotola and pushed her against the wall.
 
“The impact was so much that the plate number fell off. The driver did a hit and run, he absconded instead of waiting to care. A passer bye took a bike and chased after him. He was caught, brought back and handed over to the police.
 
“Omotola is in critical condition at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital. We seek justice for Omotola and this white man should not be released. #justiceforomotola.”


However, the Lagos State Police spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin in a statement confirmed that the Lebanese had been arrested in police custody.

Hundeyin tweeted, “On May 4, 2022 at about 0745hrs, a middle-aged Lebanese by the name John Greg ‘m’ drove a Toyota 4Runner recklessly and against traffic on Sanusi Fafunwa Road thereby hitting one Omotomi Akinsanya ‘f’ which resulted in serious injuries to her leg. He sped off but was chased and arrested.
 
“Suspect in our custody. Vehicle impounded and in our station. Victim undergoing treatment at LASUTH. Victim’s family duly informed. Embassy of Lebanon duly informed. Investigation ongoing.”
