Lagos: Sanwo-Olu reacts to train accident at Oshodi


Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, on Monday, reacted to the train accident which occurred along the driveway into the Nigerian Army Shopping Arena in Oshodi.

Muhabarishaji recalls that six persons were inside the vehicle, but no one died.

Sanwo-Olu, who visited the scene of the fatal accident involving a commuter train and two vehicles, described the accident as regrettable, NAN reports.

The governor, who was accompanied by the Minister of Transportation, Mr Rotimi Amaechi, during the on-the-spot assessment of the scene, said that the accident happened on the day the Federal Government and the State government reached an agreement to close down the shopping complex’s gates at the railway line because of safety concern.

“This incident is regrettable because it happened on the day all stakeholders reached a consensus to close down the gates into the shopping arena,” Sanwo-Olu said.

“This’s part of the concerns we’ve been raising about commuters’ safety on this axis. We need to act fast.

“This fatal accident should strengthen our resolve to do the needful and prevent a repeat of the sad incident in the future.

“It’s also a clarion call on our people to be safety conscious whenever they need to drive across the rail track.

“If there’s a slow movement of vehicles at any railway bypass, then there is a need to keep a safe distance from the rail tracks.

“Safety of the people is paramount, and we will do all that is required to ensure we put a stop to this kind of accident.”
