Trailer crushes Okada rider in Lagos

The rider of a motorcycle, popularly called okada, has died after he was crushed by a trailer today at Isolo, Lagos. The accident, which led to the death of Biliaminu Olayiwola, occurred this morning at the Daleko bridge in Isolo.

The General Manager, Lagos Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA, Adesina Tiamiyu, confirmed the incident, saying that the agency received a distress call at about 9.19 a.m. concerning an accident at Daleko Bridge inward Isolo, which prompted the immediate activation of the Agency’s Emergency Response Team, ERT to the scene of the accident accordingly. Tiamiyu said the trailer was moved off the road to a safer place using a tow truck provided by LASTMA.

He said:
 "Investigation conducted by the Agency’s ERT on getting to the scene of the incident revealed that a bike man was crushed under a trailer while trying to make a u-turn. The driver of the trailer absconded immediately the accident occurred but was later apprehended by Police officers and was taken to Olosan Police Station, Mushin for further interrogation. Unfortunately, the driver of the bike identified as Biliaminu Olayiwola lost his life due to the incident and was recovered by the LASEMA’s response team and was later handed over to the Police. 
"The agency’s ERT with NSCDC attached alongside LASAMBUS, LASTMA, Lagos State Fire Service from Isolo station, Nigeria Police Force and FRSC were the responders at the scene of the incident," he added.
He advised motorist and okada riders to always ensure utmost safety while on the highway to avoid unnecessary loss of lives.
