An unidentified lady was on Tuesday crushed to death by a moving train near Shogunle bus stop in Ikeja, Lagos, which was heading for Ogun state, Southwest Nigeria.

According to an eyewitness report the lady had her hand stretched out to passengers already on board so they could help her board the already snail moving train. Thunder struck and disaster happened when the train without notice sped off. The lady at this point missed her steps, stumbled, fell and was crushed to death by the train.

Samuel Jinadu, Lagos state police spokesman said he has not yet been officially briefed by the police in Shogunle on the incident.

Truth is, the Nigerian railway system is not coordinated at all. How the heck would you allow people hop into trains the same they do for ‘molue’. Just sad.
