Just In: Speaker Obasa Cancels Political Walk Over Lagos Train Accident


Speaker Mudashiru Obasa of the Lagos State House of Assembly on Thursday suspended a political walk across Agege following a train accident that happened in the Ikeja area of the State earlier in the day.


The Speaker met the thousands of youth, men and women as they walked towards the Pen Cinema area of Agege on his way from an official engagement and abruptly stopped them.


The bus had staff of the Lagos State government who were on their way to work.


Dr. Obasa described the train accident as a sad occurrence just as he sympathised with the families of the victims.


The Speaker thanked the various groups for their support, while asking them to return home in honour of those affected by the accident.


“I want to thank you all for coming out because of me. You have planned this walk since over three weeks and I understand.

“However, there was a sad incident today. A train collided with a bus conveying government staff and I learnt that casualties were recorded.


“You can imagine people who left their homes to go to work only to experience such terrible accident.


“As a result of this, I want to urge us all to return to our homes for the sake of the victims. Nobody prays to experience such. So I understand the feelings of the victims’ loved ones at this moment.


“I commiserate with the families of those who lost their lives and support Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu as his administration commences a probe of the incident.


“I also urge us all to pray for the bereaved families and the injured as you all return home,” Obasa told the crowd.
