A commercial motorcycle operator, popularly called ‘Okada,’ and a police Inspector, Philip Kolo, were crushed to death at PWD Bus Stop, on Agege motor road, Lagos, yesterday September 19th.

According to reports, the accident occurred at about 10 am on Wednesday when the okada rider, with the policeman as passenger, was trying to navigate the rail track into Adekunle Fajuyi way, Ikeja G.R.A.

Eyewitnesses said the motorcycle rider had sighted the train, which was en-route Ijoko, Ogun State, but his attempt to navigate the rail track before its arrival proved abortive and was crushed to death.

A petty trader at the scene, Adejoke Salawu, said documents recovered from the accident scene indicated that the passenger was a policeman.

“But he ran out of luck when his motorbike got stuck on the rail track at that spot. The train crushed the rider and his passenger on the spot. After the accident, what we saw was their charred bodies and their blood splashed on the rail track,” she said

Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the Lagos state police command, CSP Chike Oti, said the deceased police officer was attached to the Inspector-General of Police Monitoring Unit Strike Team, Force Headquarters, Abuja and was in Lagos on an official assignment. His remains have been deposited in the morgue.
