LAWMA breaks silence on crushing of two street sweepers to death by reckless driver


The Lagos Waste Management Agency (LAWMA) has lamented the crushing to death of two of its street sweepers along Gbagada expressway on Monday.

The two sanitation workers were reportedly crushed to death by a driver who was said to be evading arrest from the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) officers.

LAWMA, in a statement on its X handle said it regretted to announce the tragic death of two of its esteemed sanitation workers, who were hit by a reckless driver, in the cause of discharging their lawful duties and rendering invaluable services to humanity around Gbagada axis.

The Authority said it was working with security agencies to apprehend and prosecute the errant driver of the car, with vehicle number EPE 984 DV.

“We wish to appeal to motorists for the umpteenth time, to drive with utmost caution on the highways, to avoid sad incidents like this happening to our sanitation workers or anyone in the course of their legitimate duties.

“The public is urged to remain calm as appropriate steps are being taken and necessary measures put in place. Our heartfelt condolences go to the families of the deceased, whom we love most dearly. May their souls continue to rest in peace,” it stated.
