Sanwo-Olu Cancels Lagos Public Activities For Train Crash

In response to the three fatalities in an accident involving a train and a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) vehicle in PWD railway crossing, Ikeja, Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has canceled all of the State’s public events scheduled for Thursday.

This was said by Mr. Segun Dawudu, the Commissioner for Youth and Social Development, at a program at the Point View Event Centre in Ikeja, where the Governor was going to meet with more than 2,000 young people.

The cancellation, according to Dawudu, was made in memory of the crash victims.

The fully loaded bus collided with the train in the early hours of Thursday killing two women and a man, and leaving many others severely injured.

The youths, who were already seated, were asked to go home as the event had been rescheduled.

Dawudu said the event tagged: “Youth timeout with the governor”, will now hold next week as Governor Sanwo-Olu was visiting the injured in the hospital and would not make it to the event.

He expressed his condolences to the families of those who lost their lives in the accident and promised that the state government would provide all necessary support to those who were injured.

Dawodu implored all Lagosians to say a word of prayer for the departed souls.

Some of the youths present were also urged to visit the Gbagada General Hospital and Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, LASUTH ikeja to donate blood to the injured.
