On the rail track in the Sogunle area of Lagos, an accident involving an NRC train and a staff bus for the Lagos State Government BRT occurred.
The National Emergency Management Agency reports that two bodies have so far been found at the location and that numerous other people had casualties.
“According to information gathered at the scene of the incident, numerous automobiles stopped when they reached the level crossing while the driver of the Lagos State Staff Bus continued to move, which I don’t know why,” Okhiria told NAN in Lagos.
”Maybe the driver thought he could pass before the train got nearer to him. He could not pass, then the train crushed the bus; that is what we gathered.
“The train was coming from Ijoko to Iddo.”
In order to prevent railway accidents, he advised Lagos drivers to exercise greater caution when crossing the level crossing.
The managing director pleaded with drivers to always keep the level crossing in mind since he cared about the staff members of Lagos State.
While approaching the level crossing, Okhiria advised drivers to stop at their designated bus stops.
A Lagos State Government worker bus was crushed by a moving train at PWD, Ikeja, according to a statement from Mr. Taofiq Adebayo, Director of the Public Affairs and Enlightenment Department of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA).
The staff bus, according to Adebayo, has the license plate 04A- 48LA.
The first emergency responders on the scene, according to him, were LASTMA enforcement personnel.
Adebayo claimed they had requested assistance from additional emergency personnel.
