While waiting, some persons began to complain that the SUV was obstructing the free flow of traffic in the complex. Instead of informing them that he couldn’t drive, the teenager took the keys from his mother’s bag and hopped on the driver’s seat. He was said to have put it in reverse and hit the 50-year-old two times.
Mrs Tuale was rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi Araba, Surulere, where she had surgery before her death on Thursday, September 4, 2020.
Her husband, Christopher Iwejim, who recounted the unfortunate incident said
”We were told that the boy and his mother went to the market to buy some things. After they did, the woman asked the son to wait for her in the car so that she could go and pack the remaining items.
