Nov 1st, 2013 – Explosion At LAGBUS Terminal In Ojodu-Berger Lagos As Fire Destroys Bus
A passenger bus caught fire few hours ago at the popular Ojodu/Berger terminal of LAGBUS. Scared passengers took to their heels in panic after a bus which had just driven into the station suddenly burst into flames.
A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos, reports that the commuters fled in different directions when flames erupted under the front wheels of the bus with registration no: XP 962 AKD.
The driver, simply identified as Amuda, and other officials of the LAGBUS Asset Management Company, operators of the buses, however, were able to promptly bring the fire under control.
A commuter, Mr. Oyewole Kayode, told NAN that some friction on the brake linings may have caused the fire.
Kayode, who claimed to be a technician, lauded the officials for putting out the fire, without any causality.
He described the situation as unfortunate, saying it could have happened to anyone.
