A passenger train on Monday reportedly crushed a beggar to death at Muslim Area of Lagos.

It was gathered that the sad incident took place along Ijoko to Iddo bound Mass Transit train near Mushin railway station on Monday Morning.

The news of the death was confirmed by Mr. Jerry, the Lagos District Manager RDM of the corporation.

Addressing newsmen, Mr. Jerry Oche advised people to endeavour to obey the order and signs attached to the rail lines, adding it was against the law to sit or trade beside the railway line.

He also warned traders, hawkers, beggars, and passerby to stay away from the rail lines across the state to avoid causality.

He said; “Anybody who has no business entering the train should not be on the rail corridor, because it is very dangerous.

“It’s like a suicide mission seeing a train approaching and you are still sitting down on the track.”
