LAGOS—Tragedy struck, yesterday, on the Third Mainland Bridge, Lagos, after a passenger on a commercial motorcycle (Okada) that was hit by a fast moving vehicle, plunged into the lagoon.

The incident, which occurred at about 4pm, hampered the free flow of traffic as sympathisers battled to save the unidentified passenger. However, the Okada rider only sustained injury. Eyewitnesses said the driver of the red cab that hit the motorcycle fled the scene.

Officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, arrived the scene and helped control the resultant traffic gridlock. Sector Commander of the Corps, Mr. Jonas Agu, disclosed that the red cab hit the motorcycle from the rear. Local divers, according to him, made effort to comb the water but could not recover the body of the passenger.

The eyewitness said Lagos State Government “has always been against Okada on expressways, the Third Mainland Bridge inclusive. However, instead of complying, they don’t think about the risk involved in disobeying. I hope all will learn a lesson from this incident.

“They should understand that the law is there to protect them and if anyone wants to make a long distance journey, he or she should take a bus.”

The motorcyclist, according to him, was rushed to the Gbagada General Hospital, while his motorbike was in police custody.

Whatever! The government is obliged to set a team that'll find the passenger's corpsd. Accepted that they disobeyed the law, first the passenger's body should be retrieved.
