crushed an unidentified Okada rider and his passenger at the railway
crossing of the Nigerian Railway Corporation at   Guinness Road, off

the train, heading towards Oyingbo area of the state, crushed the duo.
The Okada rider, who was said to be impatient,  was said to have ignored
the instruction of the flagman, who had stopped vehicles and Okadas for
the train to pass.
An eyewitness said: “He (Okada man) had made a quick dash but was
unlucky, as all of a sudden, we heard the sound of broken bones and saw
dismembered body scattered all around the area.”
When Vanguard visited the scene, the badly crushed Boxer model
motorcycle was seen at a corner, while the corpse of the passenger was

The tragedy led to a gridlock on the axis, as sympathisers bemoaned
the fate of the victims. It will be recalled that a similar incident

impatient Okada rider and passenger were crushed-Olasunkanmi Akoni
