The motorcyclist took the lane dedicated to BRT without using headlamp at 4 am, leading to a collision

The bus in question belongs to the Primero Transport Services Limited, which reportedly rammed into the Okada with two passengers.

The motorcycle was said to have made use of the route dedicated to the BRT without switching on its headlamp around 4 in the morning.

This wasn't the first time a collision would involve a motorcycle and a vehicle, considering the recent event when a fleeing Peugeot car ran into pregnant a woman and motorcyclist in Delta State.

From what we learnt, the okada rider and one of his passengers died right on the spot while the other remaining passenger is presently receiving treatment at one hospital nearby from the injury sustained as a result of the collision.

When the tragedy struck, the BRT driver identified as Bohan Abiodun, quickly rushed to the Oke-Ado Police Division to inform them of the incident. This prompted the police and other disaster response units to rush to the scene with the hope of rescuing the injured victim.
