A banker, Segun Ajisebutu, was yesterday crushed by a BRT bus at Palmgrove bus-stop, Lagos, while dashing across the BRT lane.
The incident reportedly occurred around 6am, under Palmgrove pedestrian bridge when the victim was going to his place of work, a new generation bank.
The accident was said to have resulted in traffic gridlock which took over the BRT lane for hours until the arrival of law enforcement agents who restored normalcy.
The body was laid on the service lane where he was later identified through some documents found on him.
The development was also announced on a radio station where one of his relatives got wind of the situation and contacted other relatives.
One of the victim’s relatives who identified himself as Lekan, told Vanguard in a telephone conversation: “He was a promising guy and I spoke with him on phone last Sunday when he gave me an assignment to be collected on Friday. It was sad to hear the announcement of his death on radio this morning (yesterday),”
Segun, a father of two from Ondo State, was said to be in his early 30s when he met his untimely death and the body had been deposited in a morgue.
