The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority has revealed a tragic incident where two bodies were discovered under an empty diesel truck at the Barracks Bus Stop along the Lagos–Badagry Expressway.
The revelation was made by the Public Relations Officer, LASTMA, Adebayo Taofiq, in a statement issued on Saturday.
Taofiq disclosed, “The two recovered dead bodies were passengers on a motorcycle riding in a direction prohibited by law, ‘One-way,’ on the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.”
He further explained that the motorcycle rider died at a hospital near Satellite Town, while the other two passengers lost their lives at the accident scene.
Preliminary investigations suggest that the accident occurred when the truck driver lost control due to a burst tire, colliding with a motorcycle traveling in a one-way direction along the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.
The truck driver fled the scene, leaving behind the two deceased passengers.
Acting General Manager of LASTMA, Bakare Oki, cautioned truck drivers against speeding and urged motorcycle riders to avoid violating traffic regulations.
Oki emphasized the need for adherence to road safety guidelines, stating, “Truck drivers should avoid speeding, and motorcycle riders should refrain from riding on all state-wide restricted routes in a single direction.”
The statement also mentioned a recent incident involving Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, ordering the arrest of a soldier for disobeying traffic laws at the same location where the accident occurred.
LASTMA Commander, Area D, Ogunremi Olanrewaju, led recovery operations, ensuring the swift evacuation of the truck and motorcycle to enable unimpeded vehicular movement along the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.
