Dozens Rescued After Deadly Lagos Train And Bus Crash

A dramatic collision between a passenger bus and train in the neighbourhood of Ikeja in the Nigeria’s city of Lagos has left three people dead.

Rescuers helped another 84 people from the wreckage on Thursday morning.


Ibrahim Farinloye from the National Emergency Management Agency (Nema) said a train coming into Lagos from Abeokuta ploughed into the bus carrying state government staff as it tried to get over the railway crossing.

Crowds gathered during the rescue operation, trying to help.

The wrecked coach has now been loaded on to a lorry to be towed away.
