FRSC Denies Involvement In Auto-Crash That Kills School Children In Lagos

FRSC Lagos State Commander,  Olusegun Ogungbemide has urged the general public to disregard information being circulated that FRSC men caused the crash. 
The statement was contained in a press release the sector public relation officer, Route Commander, Olabisi Sonusi shared with this medium. The statement reads in part, "An articulated truck was said to have lost control at the Grammar School Bus stop along Ogunnusi road, Lagos today Tuesday 7th December 2021 which caused the death of an unverified number of students and left many injured.

"The men of FRSC were called upon by passerby to help intervene after the crash had happened. 

About seven (7) of the victims were rescued and immediately taken to Lagos State Emergency Centre Ojota by FRSC personnel while another road user helped in carrying about seven (7) also to the same emergency center."

Ogungbemide has tasked the general public to disregard the information being circulated by some people accusing FRSC men of the crash. 

He added that "We want to place on record that our men were not in any way involved in the cause of the crash as patrol activities were not ongoing along that axis as at the time of the crash.

The Sector Commander Corps Commander Olusegun Ogungbemide however wishes to commiserate with the families of the deceased, that God will grant them the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss. He also prayed that the injured will recuperate fast.

He, therefore, wishes to state that normalcy has been restored to the axis as security agents are on the ground to ensure the free flow of movements for motorists.

Pandemonium broke out along the Ogunusi Road, Grammar School Bus Stop, in Lagos on Tuesday afternoon when the driver of an articulated truck lost control and rammed into over 20 pupils.

The pupils were on their way home after school activities and had wanted to cross the road when the truck ran over them.
