An unidentified young man was killed by a passenger train at Ikeja, Lagos. The man was standing on the rail track oblivious of the fast approaching train. The Ogun-Lagos-bound mass transit train just left Agege Train Station when the accident occurred. See Graphic photo below:
According to AgegeTv, the train had sounded its horn repeatedly as it was approaching for clearance of its track, according to an eyewitness, the man was apparently carried away while walking on the track before the accident happened.
“Obviously the man was not aware of the approaching train even as it blasted its horn. “Before he knew it, he was already hit by the train and was not given any chance to escape. “Immediately he was hit, the body was mangled as the train dragged it underneath,’’ the eyewitness said.
People standing by the rail track that saw the incident tried reaching out to the emergency management team.
