Lagos Train Crash: FRSC Sympathises With Victims

The families of victims of Thursday’s Lagos train crash at the PWD rail crossing, off the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway have received a condolence message from Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps, Dauda Biu.

Biu, while expressing his sympathy for them, advised that relevant authorities should construct level crossing railway gates to enhance safety in train operations across the country.

Reports revealed that the incident which claimed six lives and many injured was a passenger train which collided with a fully-loaded staff bus belonging to the Lagos State Government at the PWD rail crossing, off the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway.

This development has also prompted a directive from authorities.
In a statement signed by the Corps Spokesperson, Bisi Kazeem on Friday, Biu called on traders to avoid the unwholesome practice of displaying wares around or on rail tracks.

The Corps Marshal also cautioned all categories of road users, to desist from undue interference with rail tracks whether or not the rails are being engaged by trains.

The statement read in part “The Corps Marshal commiserate with the families of the dead and also wished the injured quick recovery and the families of the deceased the fortitude to bear the losses.

“He commended the FRSC team and all first responders like Nigeria Police, LASEMA, LASTMA for prompt rescue of the victims and promised that the crash will be investigated.”
