LAGOS State Governorship Candidate of the Action People’s Party (APP), Chief Abiola Adeyemi, on Friday sympathised with Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the families of victims of Thursday’s train/bus collision in Lagos.
In a condolence message on Friday in Lagos, Adeyemi described the accident involving a passenger train and the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) as unfortunate and saddening.
The candidate said that it was a black Thursday for all Lagos residents, and prayed God to protect Lagos residents and all Nigerians.
“To those that died, may their gentle souls rest in perfect peace. My condolences go to their families. May God Almighty give them the fortitude to bear the huge loss.
“No one and nothing can fill the vacuum created by the loss of these people.
“My heart and prayers go out to their families, the survivors and the Lagos State establishment, where these victims were actively working until their sudden death.
“While we are thanking God for sparing the lives of many involved in the unfortunate incident, we wish those injured quick recovery,” she said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the accident occurred on Thursday morning at the railway level crossing at the PWD Bus Stop in Oshodi.
The train dragged the bus conveying some Lagos State workers and other passengers from the bus stop to Shogunle Bus Stop before it could stop.
Six persons have so far been confirmed dead, while many, including school children, were injured. (NAN)
