One dead as Dangote truck rams into BRT bus in Lagos
Many people were feared dead Tuesday as a loaded Dangote truck rammed into a high capacity BRT bus in Ikorodu, Lagos.
The truck reportedly skidded off the main express and then collided with the bus on the BRT corridor at Ogolonto area of Ikorodu.
“Casualties have been taken to the hospital,” Lagos State Transport Management Authority said, adding that the two vehicles have been removed from the expressway.
However, the accident caused a long stretch of gridlock outward Ikorodu.
“Traffic backlog has extended to Oja bus stop for those coming from Ikorodu. The backlog is at Asolo for those going into Ikorodu,” LASTMA said.
