One person has been confirmed dead and two others injured after a train averted a collusion with an abandoned commercial bus on Friday morning at Pen Cinema, Agege area of Lagos Mainland.
According to reports, the three victims were sitting atop the train when it veered upon sighting the bus from afar. The train was said to have continued its journey, oblivious of the casualties.
Eyewitnesses who spoke to a correspondent, said the deceased fell on the rail line and was shredded by the moving train, while the other two fell by the bus, losing some body parts.
Some local hoodlums who were obviously angered by the incident, reportedly set the bus ablaze as onlookers rushed the injured to nearby Orile-Agege General Hospital.
The General Manager, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Adesina Tiamiyu, who was at the scene and confirmed the incident, said the wreckage of the bus had been removed.
He said:
“It is true there was an accident there but untrue that many people died. The bus was empty and packed on the side.
“The three victims were hanging on top of the train. One of them died, while the other two sustained injuries.
"They were taken to a nearby hospital but we are going there now to see them, assess their condition and relocate them if necessary.
"We have appealed to residents so many times to stop handing on moving objects. Sitting on top of a moving train is dangerous. It is deadly. People should value their lives.”
