A hit-and-run truck driver, on Friday, reportedly lost control and rammed into a bus carrying students who had just finished their WAEC examination, killing many and several commuters and motorists at the busy Agbara Bus stop along the Lagos Badagry expressway.

“I saw about four persons being pulled out of the vehicle dead while others were still trapped in the wreckage of the bus.”, one witness said.

The driver, who attempted to flee, continued his destructive path, hitting several vehicles and pedestrians, including other students waiting at a bus stop.

“The truck driver in an attempt to evade arrest continued, knocking several vehicles off its path.

“At Magbon bus stop about 2 kilometres after Agbara, the rampaging truck ran over students waiting to enter bus and crushed yet to be ascertained number of pupils.

“Not done with its evil plot, the reckless driver continued to Okoafor Bustop, where it crushes several cars and a fully loaded 18 seater madder bus,”  the eye witness disclosed.
