Nov 8, 2016 – Tragedy As Train Rooftop Riders Stone Baby To Death In Agege Lagos 

A baby and a man were killed after some passengers, riding on top the train, engaged residents of Agege, Lagos State, in a ‘stone-hurling attack’ on Friday night.

According to witnesses, the baby, who was strapped to her mother’s back, died immediately one of the stones hurled by passengers on top of the train hit it.

When the mother realised that her baby was dead, she collapsed and was rushed to the hospital, where she is still in coma. Another victim, a yet-to-be identified passenger on top of the train, was busy hurling missiles at passers-by and traders when he smashed his head on the pedestrian bridge at the railway station and died.

It was learnt that dozens of miscreants, who could not pay to enter the train, usually hang on top of the moving train, which has been described as illegal by the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC).

A trader said: “They armed themselves with stones and bottles, especially at night. They hurl the stones and bottles at passers-by.”

Tired of the incessant behaviour of the passengers, some youths in Agege mobilised and tried to fight back on Friday, resulting into fracas.

  1. Na wah for some Nigerians, must you ride on train if you don’t have money. They killed the innocent baby because of their indecent behaviour. RIP, baby also wishing quick recovery for the mother.

  2. Hooliganism should be decisively dealt with. Why did the Railway Authorities allow people ride on top of the vehicle in the first place? Mchweeeeew !

    I pray the lady recovers and may God console her and her entire family!

  3. there is no helping some Nigerians. Nigeria is beyond help. Trust me. With the amount of irredeemable animals who call themselves human living amongst us, how can we make headway. There are millions of illegal train passengers in India and I have never heard of cases where they haul dangerous objects at passers-by. Why have we become like this?

  4. LOOK AT THE WAY THEY KILLED THAT INNOCENT BOY. IT MAY BE THE HAND WORK OF ALL THESE HAUSA/FULANI PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONES THAT BEHAVE LIKE ANIMALS AND THEY DONT VALUE HUMAN LIVES. GOV. AMBODE SHOULD LOOK INTO THIS MATTER AND HE SHOULD PUT AN END TO IT. MAY GOD GRANT THAT WOMAN QUICK RECOVERY

  5. Why does everything have to end in chaos in that country? Did anyone put a curse on Nigeria? The NRC has to hire law enforcement to get rid of these hooligans and touts and put an end to the practice. There are more people atop the train than inside, worse than rural India. Their unruliness has resulted in the death of an innocent baby. Nigeria na helele. It’s like moving in the backward direction.
