Four people have been reportedly killed on Tuesday when a moving train crushed a tricycle along Iju-Fagba corridor of the railway line in Lagos State.

Christian Madza, the Lagos District Superintendent, confirmed the incident to the News Agency of Nigeria.

Madza said that the tricycle was trying to outsmart the moving train when the train crushed it at the level crossing.

“That is what we have been repeating every time, don’t lay too smart on rain line because the train has its right of way.

“The tricyclists was just trying to outsmart the train after the railway official has flagged them to stop for the oncoming train; it is so pathetic,” he said.
