Nigerian model, Maryam Elisha who owns the Rikaoto by ME fashion brand nearly lost her life some days ago after her Mercedes Benz G-Wagon went up in flames on the Eko Bridge, Lagos.
The fire was first noticed by other road users, who called her attention to it.
Speaking about the incident, Elisha, said that she tried to stop the car immediately, but the brakes failed.
“When the car eventually started to slow down, I put it on park and tried to open the door, which wouldn’t open until people came to my aid and helped me out before the fire spread everywhere,” she added.
