A motorcycle rider, 35, has died following a road accident in the Idi-Iroko area of Lagos, Wednesday.
Confirming the development, the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) said the road accident involved a BRT bus, a Mazda car and a motorcycle with unknown registration number.
Another adult male sustained serious injuries and is at the hospital receiving treatment.
“Upon arrival at the scene of incident, it was discovered that a BRT bus with registration number FST-185XS lost control while on motion as a result of some spilled pig feed on the road and collided with a Mazda car (KJA-555XY) and a Motorcycle with unknown registration number thereby obstructing free vehicular movement along the main carriageway.
“Unfortunately, the motorcycle rider, an adult male (Lawal Musa aged 35yrs), lost his life at the scene of incident while an adult male who sustained different degree of injury had been moved to the hospital.
“LRT, LASAMBUS, LASTMA, SEHMU and Police were responders at the scene working together to evacuate the accident vehicles off the road to restore normalcy along the axis,” LASEMA said in a statement.
The emergency responders have reportedly evacuated the spilt pig feed from the road, to enhance free flow of traffic.
“The dead victim (Lawal Musa) had been handed over to the family by Sehmu in the presence of Police officers from Anthony division while the accidented BRT bus has been recovered off the road median with the aid of the agency’s heavy-duty equipment (Supermetro).
“Secondary incident averted and road now free for vehicular activities, operation concluded,” the agency said.Follow us on social media
