Dec 19, 2014 – Benue Lady Jumped Out Of Speeding Bus In Lagos, Died 2 Months To Wedding

A 27-year-old woman, Lucy Gbagyo, has died after jumping from a speeding commercial bus in the Shogunle area of Lagos State, Punch reports.

The Benue State indigene was on her way to see her fiance, Philip Nguhwa, on Sunday evening for preparations for their wedding when the incident happened.Gbagyo and Nguhwa were to have planned their wedding on February 27, 2015, having courted for four years.

It was learnt that on the fateful day, the deceased had boarded a vehicle from the Toll Gate end of the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway en route to Ilori Street in the Shogunle area where Nguhwa lives.

The bus driver was said to have sped past her destination and she began to shout for him to stop.

The driver allegedly ignored her and continued with the journey.When her cries fell on deaf ears, she reportedly forced the door open and jumped out.

Her fiance, Nguhwa, a trader, said the driver immediately stopped the vehicle as other passengers and sympathisers in the area rushed to save the victim.

He said,
“One of them picked her phone and checked the last dialled number. He saw my number and called me. He said I should rush down to the bus stop.
“When I got there, I called her name and she opened her eyes faintly and shut them again. We all carried her into the bus and rushed her to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital.

“We had not gone too far when she died in the vehicle. When we got to the hospital, she was confirmed dead on arrival.”

Punch learnt that the victim, who was into the business of buying clothes in Lagos and selling them in Benue, had lost her father in a motor accident in January.

Punch learnt that the police arrested both the driver and the conductor of the vehicle.But a relative, Felix Agu,said the family was not interested in pursuing the case.

Agu said,
“We have written a letter to withdraw the matter. All we want is for her corpse to be released to us for burial. The family stays in Benue and everybody wants her buried in her home town.”

    Maybe she thought they are kidnappers and let no one blame her. The police made the right move by arresting the driver and the conductor but what baffles me is why the family members don’t want the driver and his conductor charged to court. In my opinion, the driver and the conductor are culpable and should be charged to court and sentenced in convicted. Why did they not stop when the lady asked them to? The case should be the driver and his conductor versus the state of Lagos. The relatives of the lady should stay with the state to prosecute the case. Nigerian justice walks on its head if the police listens to the relatives and let the case disappear.

    The driver and his conductor should be prosecuted. They have something to hide. Maybe there are other more unfortunate victims that we do not know about.
