LCC, Lagos Ambulance Service Rescue Hit and Run Victim, Foots Hospital Bill

Officers of the Lekki Concession Company’s (LCC) Patrol Team on Tuesday, rescued a victim hit and injured by an unidentified vehicle and also footed his hospital bill.

The incident occurred at a pedestrian along the Jakande end of the Eti-Osa-Lekki-Epe Expressway, and the LCC’s Incident and the Security Teams ambulance provided by the Lagos State Ambulance Service (LASAMBUS), were on ground to provide first aid treatment.

Speaking, the LCC’s Head of Route and Incident, Michael Aina, said timely intervention of LCC’s patrol team, always available to help distressed road users, saved the injured man.

“The LCC makes it a point of duty to routinely ensure commuters’ safety and security along the Eti-Osa Lekki-Epe Express Way. It is one of the company’s core responsibilities aside from the construction and maintenance of infrastructure along the axis,” Aina said, while advising drivers to always observe speed limit on the road.

Also speaking, the Managing Director of the LCC, Yomi Omomuwasan, urged drivers to always observe speed limits on the road, saying people shouldn’t become reckless because of the excellent state of the Eti-Osa-Lekki-Epe Expressway.

He said if they are not concerned about themselves, they should care about other road users like the innocent pedestrian hit by the hit and run driver.

Omomuwasan disclosed that as part of its social corporate responsibility, the LCC has paid the hospital bill of the injured man.

“We feel it is the least we can do for the innocent victim who is in severe pains. We also want to assure every road user of essential services along the axis, including free 24/7 emergency assistance, vehicle breakdown and recovery services and security patrol to all road users plying the Eti-Osa Lekki-Epe Expressway.”
