Two vehicles have plunged into a canal in front of the National Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos, within 12 hours, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
The accidents bring to four, the number of such occurrences at the canal in the past three months.
An ash colour Toyota Camry marked GGE 196 AR fell into the canal on Sunday night with a lone occupant, the driver, while a wine colour Opel Omega marked JJN 583 AA conveying three brothers plunged into the canal at about 9am on Monday.
The vehicles were both brought out of the water on Monday morning and all the four people are alive.
NAN gathered that the Camry took off from the National Theatre a few seconds before it skidded off the road and plunged into the canal.
One of the occupants of the Opel Omega, Mr Ifeanyi Stephen, said he took no notice of the canal.
“We were driving and thinking that the road was straight because we are not conversant with this route. By the time we got there, we saw that the place was water-logged.
“We applied the brake but the car didn’t stop and that was how it fell into the water,” he narrated.
