Three persons were on Friday killed and many others sustained injuries after a train hit a commercial bus at Pen Cinema railway crossing in Lagos State.

An eyewitness, Mr Raji Oladimeji told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the accident occurred when the bus driver was trying to make a U-turn on the rail line.

He said, “We warned the driver not to make the U-turn at that particular point when a train was approaching but he refused.

“So, it was in the process of making the turn that the approaching train crushed the bus. People hanging on the train fell off and three died instantly while others sustained various injuries,” Oladimeji, an electrician said.

He said some youths set the bus ablaze in anger while the injured were taken to a nearby hospital.





The Lagos District Manager, Nigerian Railway Corporation, Mr Jerry Oche who confirmed the incident, said the accident happened at about 9.30 a.m.

“We were informed that a bus was trying to make a U-turn at the railway line this morning at Agege Pen Cinema area when a moving train crushed it in the process.

“The police are on top of the incident to bring the situation to normalcy as youths went on rampage over the death of those who lost their lives in the accident.

“The information given to us by the police was that a number of people hanging on the train were affected where two people died while many others sustained injuries,”
he said.

Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, the Public Information Officer, National Emergency Management Authority, Lagos Office, said the injured had been taken to the hospital.
