Woman gives birth inside a commercial bus this morning in Lagos
The woman, who reportedly boarded the bus at Ijede, could not alight at the Sabo Bus Stop, Ikorodu, as other passengers did, making the bus driver and his conductor suspicious, reports Vanguardngr.
An eyewitness said the conductor started yelling at the woman to get down from the bus, but she could not utter a word as she had fallen into labour. It was said that the conductor, seeing that the woman was in labour, raised the alarm.
But those around took to their heels, thinking a fight had started between the conductor and miscreants. The eyewitness added that when the shout for help persisted, some LASTMA officials and other sympathisers moved closer, only to discover that the woman was in labour.
They rendered necessary assistance and the woman delivered a baby girl few minutes after. Both the woman and her newborn were taken to the Health Centre, Ita-Elewa for medical attention.
