Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on behalf of the people and government, sympathizes with the families of those who died today in the Ojuelegba truck accident.
In a press statement e-sign by Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, it was confirmed that nine persons died in the accident. The injured are being treated in hospital.
The accident will be thoroughly investigated so as to prevent a recurrence of such tragic incidents. We are working with the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing to install Vehicle/Truck barriers on the inward and outward sections of the Bridge.
We share the grief of those who lost their loved ones in the accident and pray that the Almighty will strengthen them at this difficult time.
The Government will continue to implement its Transport Master Plan, which has safety strategies that will ensure that our roads are safe.
