A Nigerian man, Emeka Okoli, his wife and their two children were among the nine passengers killed when a container-laden truck fell on a commercial bus at Ojuelegba bridge in Lagos on January 29, 2023.
Their identities were confirmed earlier this month by family members and colleagues.
A Facebook user who said the victim was her cousin, took to the platform to mourn him.
“I have been holding myself since yesterday to make this tears post, reason because I don’t want to believe this heart broken news in our families till we see my cousin and his family dead bodies. And finally today finally we confirm Emeka and his family are dead ,see them lying helplessly here at Mortuary In Yaba,” Oge Petra Okafor Nalue, wrote.
“Nigeria happened to us. Death did us dirty on Sunday at Ojuelegba lagos. Nnaa you went to church on Sunday with your family, your wife prepared Sunday food that you guys will eat when you come back from church but life happens, death came and block your way from coming home alive. God we don’t need to question you, but how I wish one person survived, it could have been better. Container loaded with goods decided to wipe away this lovely family. Rest in peace Bro and wify. Rest in people ifechukwu and chidobelu. God if it pleases you, we accept it by faith,” she added
