A man was killed on Thursday afternoon after he was run over by a passenger bus on the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) lane at Irawo Bus Stop, Ikorodu Road, Lagos.
The unidentified man was knocked down as he tried to cross the expressway at 12:10 p.m. The accident occurred less than 50 metres away from the Irawo pedestrian bridge.
An eyewitness, wale, said: “I was standing at the Irawo bus-stop layby when the accident happened. The guy was trying to cross the road, unfortunately the BRT was speeding.
Immediately it hit the guy, the guy fell and rolled under the BRT and was crushed. The guy didn’t look properly before crossing and actually, there is a bridge just nearby. This place is not meant for crossing.”
