A pregnant woman identified as Mrs Opeoluwa Waidat Adedeji gave up the ghost at a police checkpoint in Ogun State.
According to reports, the woman died while on her way to hospital for delivery. She was in labour and was being rushed to the hospital on a motorcycle by two men, when they were stopped at the Sowore River checkpoint.
The police officers inquired why they were not wearing face masks and also not obeying the social distancing order of the state government.
The policemen allegedly delayed them on motorcycle but later allowed them to go upon when the woman started bleeding.
However, she died before getting to the hospital. This has prompted many youths of the community to storm the police headquarters with the remains of the dead woman, insisting that the police officers were responsible for her death.
