Lagos Police Arrest Driver of Government Staff Bus Involved in Fatal Train Collision
The Lagos State Police have arrested Oluwaseun Osinbajo, the driver of the government staff bus that collided with a moving train in the Shogunle, Ikeja area of Lagos on Thursday. The bus, with registration number 04A- 48LA and number 33, was carrying several passengers, mostly civil servants and their dependents, traveling from Isolo to Alausa, Ikeja. The incident occurred when the bus collided with an oncoming train at the PWD rail crossing, Shogunle, while trying to beat other motorists.
After investigations and medical examinations, the driver will be arraigned in court and transferred to the Director Public Prosecutions, as he is a Lagos State staff, according to the Commissioner for Police, CP, Lagos State Railway Command, Yetunde Longe. She also revealed that the driver had undergone psychiatric, physiological, and drug tests.
The police are currently investigating the number of people who died in the crash and plan to conduct autopsies on the victims. The driver is in police custody, and if found culpable, will be prosecuted with the assistance of the state Department of Public Prosecution. The absence of a barrier at the level crossing is reportedly not responsible for the crash. A signalman was present at the crossing, and the driver of the bus failed to obey his instructions, according to Longe.
