Two officers of the Nigeria Customs Service lost their lives in a tragic accident on the Lagos-Badagry Expressway on Saturday. It was learnt that the two victims, who were in a Toyota Camry with the number plate, YLA 121 BJ, were at a checkpoint when they were crushed by their colleague, who drove a Toyota Avalon, with number plate, YAB 366 JY.
The three officials were reportedly attached to the Seme Border Command, Lagos.
While the two crushed customs officers died on the spot, the driver of the Avalon was said to be unconscious at the Intensive Care Unit of the Badagry General Hospital, where he was receiving treatment.
A witness said the accident was caused by a burst tyre. The customs unit commander, Bakare, however, said the accident was caused by speeding.
