The operators of Bus Rapid Transit in Lagos State, Primero Transport Services Limited, while reacting to the accident that happened between a BRT bus and a Dangote truck on Tuesday stated that the driver who died in the fatal accident was not to be blamed for the incident.
The Managing Director of the firm, Fola Tinubu, while speaking with NAN in Lagos on Wednesday stated that there was nothing the driver could have done to avoid the accident.
The accident which happened between a Dangote truck and BRT bus at Majidun area of Ikorodu, Lagos, saw three people killed in the incident when the truck crushed an oncoming BRT bus with registration number LSR228XS.
Tinubu while nearly crying said: “The Dangote bus jumped up the caveat into the BRT lane and hit our bus headlong.”
”There was nothing the bus driver could have done.”
“Unfortunately, we lost the bus driver, one other staff of ours and a lady passenger.”
“We are believing that all the injured will fully recover. The medical people are doing their best, for now, we have to keep praying for them,” he said.
Tinubu urged Lagos residents not to relent in prayers for the injured, assuring that the medical personnel were also not relenting to save their lives.
