An image of four vehicles involved in an accident along Anthony inland from Gbagada claiming two lives, while six were seriously injured in Lagos.

Two people were killed at the scene, while four others were seriously injured in an accident along Anthony-inward-Gbagada on Tuesday night in Lagos.

The Director General of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Dr. Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, confirmed this Wednesday to the Nigerian News Agency (NAN).

Oke-Osanyintolu said LASEMA received calls for help about the accident around 10.30 p.m. on Tuesday.

It added that four vehicles were involved in the accident, including two dump trucks, an oil tanker and a commercial bus.

He attributed the cause of the accident to reckless driving that trapped the bus occupants.

“With the use of LASEMA light rescue equipment, six people were rescued from the bus.

“They suffered varying degrees of injuries and, sadly, two female passengers died at the scene,” said the CEO.

According to him, the agency’s first responders, which include the LASEMA Rescue Unit (LRU), the Lagos State Ambulance, the Nigerian Police and the Lagos Fire Service, were quickly mobilized to the scene for the rescue operation.

Oke-Osanyintolu said the operation was still ongoing to recover all vehicles off the road. (YAYA)
