There was chaos at the early hours of Tuesday, April 30, in Lagos as four passengers in a commercial tricycle and its rider were crushed to death by a speeding train.
It was learnt that the incident happened at about 6:45 am at the Iju Ishaga area of the state.

According to witnesses, the tricycle rider was attempting to cross the railway when it got trapped and crushed.
This Day reports that the witnesses said while the train approached, motorists and pedestrians stopped but the tricycle operator may have thought he could quickly dash through before the train would reach the crossing point.
Legit.ng earlier reported that in January, a train accident has occurred at the Mongoro area of Ikeja, Lagos as one of the train coaches fell-off the rail track while in motion, causing another coach to derail, trapping the passengers in them.
According to eye witnesses who posted the incident on social media, some of the trapped struggled to escape through the windows of the affected coaches.

As at the time of filing this report, no casualty has been recorded but many are feared trapped.
