Hit And Run Vehicle Kills Middle-Aged Man At Onipanu Bus Stop by Ping411: 11:52pm On Aug 25, 2013
A man hit by a vehicle few minute ago is lying dead at the BRT lane at Onipanu bus stop.

An eye eyewitness said a car ran over the yet to be identified man as he attempted to cross the Lagos Ikorodu road about 10.45pm on Sunday.

The car hit the man and threw him on the BRT lane where his corpse is still lying.

"The man is wearing a shirt and trousser. He should be about middle age. He was trying to cross the road from the onipanu bus stop when a private car hit him hard and threw him on the BRT lane. He died instantly and his corpse is still on the BRT lane".

Sadly this death would have been avoided as a bridge is at the bus stop but few people make use of the overhead bridge.

Hit and run deaths happen once in a while on the busy Express road.

Another source who identified herself as Sarah express worried over hit and run death.

She said "I have seen the corpse of a pregnant woman on that Ikorodu Express road. I was driving to work early one morning when I saw it and it made me sad. People should learn to use the overhead bridge," Sarah said.

The Lagos State government has put measures in place to stop residents from dashing through the Express roads but few people still make use of the bridge. The officers of the Kick Against Indisciple brigand, as well as local government officers were deployed at major bus stops to stop people from crossing the road.

The government in some cases also set up perimeter fence to stop residents from crossing express ways but to no avail.

Overhead bridges line every busstop of that express road...this accident would have been greatly avoided.

Driver was probably on top speed at this time of the night.

Arghh I hate news like this sad sad

There is pedestrian bridge at Onipanu. People just love to cross. Shortcut. At least if you want to do, open your eyes while crossing. Wonder how he didn't see the vehicle at that time.

too bad. unfortunately, he killed himself. What would he take him to use the over-head bridge? 5 minutes extra at most! When I was still in nigeria, i almost got knocked down by a vehicle at ikeja. Sice then i vowed to always use the bridge even when no vehicle is in sight.

Everybody here is criticizing that the guy should have used the pedestrian bridge. What if he did and get robbed on the bridge and he's thrown down by a hoodlum. Did you see the time? 10:45PM! May God help us, they should just create well-lit pedestrian bridges in the state, put baricades around the crossing areas and make life worth living for its citizens. DAMN! God help my nation!!

Whilst I'm not totally blaming the guy, but you do realize that such occurrences of people crossing the express happen during day time too, when there's a bridge right in front of them.

Oga Damojo,

That bridge has lighting. In fact, the entire Ikorodu Road is lit at night all the way to Mile 12. There was barricade at that particular spot (and several other spots on the Road) but people tore it down.

If the guy got robbed on the bridge as you implied, he "may" still have his life.

I am not apportioning blame to anyone here. However, whatever decision we take in life has risks. I guess he took the risk that led to his demise.

RIP to him anyways.

Funny enough, I'm always scared at that particular bus-stop 'cos the way people just cross the road ia alarming - right in front of the bloody pedestrian bridge! Both very early in the morning and late at night, I say a quick prayer cos out of no-where, you would just see a dark shadow rush across the road. I cannot blame the driver in this case especially at that time of the night.
