Top Gist Portal reports that the agency made this known via its Twitter account on Monday.
“A train ran into a Volkswagen T4 bus at the ARENA crossing, pushing it to Oshodi U-bridge. Onlookers causing more harm than good. Men on ground, Necessary Agencies.”
It was confirmed that eight passengers had narrowly escaped death when the bus with the Lagos registration number GGE 972 GE unexpectedly turned onto the train tracks while crossing the rail at PWD in Oshodi, Lagos, and collided with a fast-moving passenger train in the process.
Confirming the incident, Dr. Femi Oke-Osantintolu, Director-General of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, said that the situation that occurred about 8 a.m. had been brought under control without any loss of life reported.
“The agency received distress calls on the above. Upon arrival at the scene, it was discovered that a passenger bus with registration number GGE 972 GE, had veered onto the train tracks while crossing the rail at PWD inward Oshodi, Lagos.
“The bus was then dragged along for a stretch of the journey before the train managed to come to a complete halt. “Subsequently, the agency was able to successfully extricate the passengers and note that there was no loss of life.”
He said the casualties have been provided with on the spot medical care and discharged.
