Lady seriously injured after being hit by reckless driver in Victoria Island

John Greg, a Lagos-based Lebanese man, has been arrested by the police after hitting a lady with his vehicle while driving against traffic in Victoria Island, Lagos.

Omolola Akinsanya, the victim, was walking along Sanusi Fafunwa Street in Victoria Island when Greg’s Toyota 4Runner hit her on Wednesday. Greg immediately fled the scene, leaving Omotomi with serious injuries to her legs.

“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 the him,” wrote Wellzpapi, a Twitter user.

“He was caught, brought back and handed over to the police. Omolola is in critical condition at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital. We seek justice for Omolola and this white man should not be released.”

According to the Twitter user, Greg was immediately taken to the Victoria Island Police Station after he was apprehended.

Benjamin Hundeyin, Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed Greg’s arrest in the early hours of Thursday.

The Lagos PPRO also made it known that the arrested driver has been made to take an alcohol test.

“No one is guilty. Everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty. The court has the final say on that. We already took him for alcohol test. That result of that test will be presented in court. Also, is he a qualified driver? So, investigation is necessary,” Hundeyin wrote.
