BRT Crushes Primary School Pupil in Lagos


Chiemelie Ezeobi

A primary school pupil, Ezekiel Daniel, was Monday crushed to death by a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) along Idi-Iroko/Ogolonto area of Ikorodu, Lagos.

The pupil was said to have attempted to cross the road to enter the Cherubim and Seraphim (C&S) Primary School when the BRT hit and ran him over.

It was gathered that the incident almost led to a riot before the police and Lagos Taskforce succeeded in dispersing the crowd and restored normalcy.

Before the crowd was dispersed, they angrily lampooned the state government for not constructing a pedestrian bridge near the schools in that axis.

According to them, the accident happened because the man that usually stands on the road to assist the pupils in crossing the road was absent.
