A middle-aged woman sitting across the railway track at Shogunle area of Lagos, was on Thursday crushed to death by a moving passenger train.
The Ogun state bound train left Oshodi Station at around 4.45 p.m., heading toward Shogunle Station, Lagos.
The incident happened few meters away from the Arena Shopping Complex, Oshodi.
The woman was sitting on the rail track and was oblivious of the approaching train in spite of repeated honk by the train driver.
The woman did not make any move to leave the track
“Within a twinkle of an eye’’, the fast-approaching train ran into the woman and dismembered her body.
Passersby and sympathisers, who gathered round the corpse were shocked.
In spite of burglar-proof fencing by the Lagos State Government, some residents still encroached on the railway track.
