The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu visited the scene of the accident in the company of the Minister of Transportation, Hon. Rotimi Amaechi.
The Governor said it is regrettable that the incident happened on the day stakeholders reached a consensus to close the gates into the arena.
He added that “This is one of the concerns we have raised about commuters’ safety around the area. This accident should strengthen our resolve to prevent a reoccurrence.
“This is also a clarion call on our people to be safety conscious whenever they need to drive across the rail track.
“If there is slow movement of vehicles at any railway bypass, we must keep a safe distance from the rail tracks.
“We have rolled out advocacy on this and we will continue to intensify efforts. The safety of the people is paramount.”
