BREAKING NEWS: Two dead, several injured as train rams into Lagos staff bus (VIDEO)



A train has collided with a passenger bus in the Shogunle area of Oshodi in Lagos state.


The incident took place on Thursday morning.


Witnesses at the scene said the bus was attempting to cross the rail track when an oncoming train rammed into it.

The train reportedly dragged the bus from Shogunle to the PWD area of Ikeja.


Several passengers were said to be injured in the accident.


The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) confirmed that the bus was conveying staff of the Lagos state government to the office.


“Report confirmed there are casualties and effort is on to rescue victims to the nearest hospital,” LASTMA said.


The agency added that officials are on the scene to “do the needful”.


Ibrahim Farinloye, a spokesperson for the National Emergency Management Agency in Lagos, told Channels TV that two female staff of the state government died in the accident.


“The state government staff bus was trying to cross the PWD/Sogunle rail crossing while the train coming into Lagos from Abeokuta trapped the bus on its rail,” he said.

  1. Lack of caution, disregard for traffic rules, "nothing dey happen" mentality caused this avoidable accident. How can a sane person cross a train track with a full load of passengers damning all consequences seeing and knowing and hearing the blaring horn of a fast moving train. The idea is inconceivable

    1. This is why we need new leadership in Lagos, vote GRV next Saturday.

    2. When I say obedients, don't have sense, this is one of such instances.. This purely has to do with an individual having sense, this one is saying vote GRV... GRV kor, GAd ni.. RIP to the dead
