The bike rider was said to be trying to quickly maneuver through the level crossing while the train was moving, but got stuck on the track.

Lagos District Manager of the Nigeria Railway Corporation (NRC), Jerry Oche, who confirmed the incident, said the motorcyclist refused to stop for the train to pass. .

“We have warned passersby, motorists and other road users to stay away from railway tracks. Railway track is a very dangerous place to toy with, everything involves iron, that’s the rail tracks and the train itself. .

I learnt that he was trying to outsmart the train, before he was crushed by the moving train. It’s an unfortunate incident,” he said.
