A train collided with a passenger bus in the Shogunle area of Lagos this morning.
The bus was attempting to cross the rail line when it was hit by an incoming train which pulled it all the way to the Ikeja.
Emergency response services are said to be on the scene to evacuate the dead and injured victims to the hospital to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) in Ikeja.
The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) confirmed that two female staff of the Lagos State Government died in the accident.
NEMA also confirmed that the bus was a Viale BRT bus and that the probable cause of the accident was recklessness on the part of the BRT driver who was apparently trying to beat the train on crossing the rail line.
