LAGOS, Nigeria (AA) - At least nine people were killed in Lagos, Nigeria when a container fell off a truck and landed on a bus, an official said Sunday.

Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, permanent secretary of Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), said the truck which was carrying a 20-foot container, fell on a commercial bus at Ojuelegba, a busy area, on Sunday and crushed the bus.

"A total of nine fatalities were recovered, comprising four adult males, three adult females, a girl and a boy," he said.

He said the bus was picking up passengers at the spot when the truck lost control and fell over the side of the bridge.

“After suspending the container load with the aid of LASEMA’s forklift, an adult woman was extricated alive and taken to the trauma centre,’’ he added.

Lagos, Nigeria's business hub, often experiences such accidents due to heavy traffic.​​​​​​​
