Former Oyo Governor, Ladoja, loses son in fatal auto crash in Lagos

One of the sons of former Oyo State governor, Rasheed Ladoja, died yesterday Thursday May 29th in a fatal auto accident on Eko Bridge.

Adebola Ladoja, who was driving a Volkswagen Golf car, was heading towards Lagos Island around 3.30pm when a DAF truck said to be on top speed lost control, rammed into the median of the bridge and then rammed into his car, crushing it and killing Adebola on the spot.
"It took several hours before those who came to the rescue of the victim could break into the vehicle. He was trapped behind the wheel with blood gushing out of his head as a result of the impact,” an eyewitness said
Lagos state Police Public Relations Officer, Ngozi Braide, confirmed the incident and said the late Adebola's corpse has been deposited at the mortuary
"On Eko Bridge, a Daf truck with registration number. JJJ 59 XA, driven by one Justice Oseghai, ran into a Volkswagen Golf car marked AKD 107 CJ, driven by Adebola Ladoja, son of the former Governor of Oyo State, Senator Rasheed Ladoja. The victim died on the spot. His corpse has been moved to the Lagos Island General Hospital’s mortuary for autopsy, while the truck’s driver has been arrested."

I saw his corpse yesterday morning on that eco bridge. They brougt him out and didnt even cover him on time. People could see his corpse, like it was left on display or something. It was heartbreaking. That DAF driver though. GOD will punish you! ! Y didnt he swerve into the water? ? Blood sucker

Adebola did not die on the spot. He bled to death hours after the incident. He was taken to the Police Station instead of the Hospital. Who does that? the NPF
He gave them the number of his elder brother and Mum, and even gave them the numbers of his colleagues at work before he gave up.

My friend, Colleague, energetic analyst and amiable, loved by all, never takes side. We ate from the same plate, drive n the sale pool car. On Wednesday, we still talked about his Audi, we sat inside his car I, him and another of our colleague, laughing our heads out. His last word to me was "Owo ma dey" make we just dey push am.

He neva depended on his fathers name or wealth, he was a core hustler, he just wanted to be financially free. Dignified Debola, doesnt joke with his meals, doesnt miss his GYM session.

We argue alot, constructive arguments, when he notices im winning the arguement, he quitely walks away and the next minute he come to my desk and scatter my files and run back to his office.

Debola, Debola, Debola..... the office is on stand still. even the MD cldnt believe his ears.

Rest on my friend and colleague

Can we all in this country, civil societies, etc press hard and push for a law that mandates citizens, police, all forces to always rush accident victims to any nearest hospital, whose must be mandated by law to treat and save life first before money? Taking accident victims to police station is even more cruel.

I saw his corpse on my way to work and d way his body was left under d heavy rain,it was so obvious he wasn't rushed to any hospital,i tnk people shld stop assuming people are dead after an accident but rather take them to the hospital,let the doctors certify him dead,who knws whether d long wait could av caused his eventual death?

CHIKITO said...

WITH THE RATE OF DEATH, LIFE EXPECTANCY IN Nigeria SHUD BE REDUCED TO 30 ABEG. aND THEY SHUD STOP IMPORTING DEAD TRUCKS, CARS THAT ARE NOT ROAD WORTHY IN AMERICA ARE STILL SHIPPED TO AFRICA..NA SO WE LIKE DEATH? ALSO, ENFORCE DRIVING TEST, TO INCLUDE A KNOWLEDGE TEST AND A ROAD TEST. THEN THESE ROAD WARDENS, BOTH LASTMA,AND COPS, THEY SHUD DO MORE OF TEACHING/GUIDING PEOPLE ON HOW TO READ ROAD SIGNS AND DRIVE, DO ALCOHOL TESTS FOR RECKLESS DRIVERS, NOT JUST COLLECTING MONEY FROM THEM. TUFIA, WE R TOO CORRUPT AND WE NEVA LEARN, ARE WE ANIMALS SEF? EVEN FRANK DONGA CAN DRIVE BETA.

I saw that accident and his lifeless body on eko bridge on my way to the island as early as 6.15 am on Thursday morning. The car was badly mangled and noted it was a red golf saloon car. What I don't understand is how the accident could have happened at about 3. 30pm on Thursday as the reports say. Is it a typo or what? Any way, may his soul rest!

Police and their lies!!he did not die on the spot.Meanwhile i have questions:Where do insane people who are under the influence of all sorts of alcohol and drugs STILL have access to drive?NiGERIA! Where do insane people still hop into rickety cars way pass their roadworthiness and STILL drive at the speed of sound?NIGERIA!As if its not enough,the roads are terrible....These killers have been responsible for countless deaths on the road.IF YOU EVER find yourself in an accident,just say ur last prayers cos we dont have any emergency service.Infact,this place is a hopeless refuse dump and i am currently processing my citizenship to the USA.I think we should all leave this dumpsite while we still can.RIP Bola

Its painful.Very painful.The way people die unneccesarily in this country.I have always believed dis drivers are the worst thing on our roads.Sometimes the door falls off the car at full speed!Can u beat dat?i know a kid that was killed by a falling door from a danfo bus.please tell me.what sort of country is dis?then we have containers falling on people,trailers failing brake,one chance e t c.You know the problem?government does not care.And the citizens do not care as well.Look at the way boko haram is being handled.You know,i feel something good will come out of boko haram.Everyone will finally be forced to CARE cos that is the attitude change we need in this country.

There are telling matters that need to be addressed in this country. No offence intended but if it takes the son of a senator for these matters to be addressed then he should be made a martyr: 1. what is the logic in hospitals rejecting accident victims without police report when the patient can be treated first and then detained? 2. why are the roads so dark at night? 3. why are those trucks allowed on the roads in their dilapidated state? where are frsc, vio officials at night when these trucks ply the road?..Nigerians wake up! May the poor boys soul rest in peace in Jesus name.
