“The driver reported that one middle-aged woman by name, Ajoke Ahmed, a passenger in the vehicle, had gone into deep labour.

“The FRSC medical team at the Sagamu Accident and Emergency Clinic immediately examined her, but since the clinic is not equipped to take delivery, the ambulance was prepared to transport her to the nearest hospital.

“ Within this process the pregnant woman gave birth to a baby girl at about 1p.m. inside the command’s clinic.
