The Lagos State sector commander of the Federal Road Safety Corporation (FRSC), Olusegun Ogungbemide has said it was not involved in the crash that claimed the lives of school children along Ogunusi road, Ojodu, in Lagos on Tuesday.
The Ogungbemide made this clarification in a statement made available to the newsmen in Lagos on Tuesday.
He explained that an articulated truck was said to have lost control at Grammar School Bus stop along Ogunnusi road, Lagos Tuesday 7th December 2021 which caused the death of an unverified number of students and left many injured.
“The men of FRSC were called upon by passerby to help intervene after the crash had happened.”
He noted that bout seven (7) of the victims were rescued and immediately taken to Lagos State Emergency Centre Ojota by FRSC personnel while another road user helped in carrying about seven (7) also to the same emergency centre.
The commander said the general public should disregard the disgruntled information been circulated by some unscrupulous element that FRSC men caused the crash.
“We want to place on record that our men were not in any way involved in the cause of the crash as patrol activities were not ongoing along that axis as at the time of the crash.”
