A deaf and dumb University graduate identified as Ibrahim, has been crushed to death in Lagos around 2pm on Tuesday. He was reportedly walking along the track when a train that just took off from the Iddo station crushed him to death at the Oyingbo area of Lagos State.
According to residents who are eye witness, all efforts to save him were abortive as he did not respond to alerts until it was too late. His body was cut into two. The train was said to have hit him, as residents watched in horror.
A witness said: “Ibrahim was a graduate of a university in Ibadan, Oyo State. He came to Lagos to work. He was deaf and dumb. Around 2pm, after observing the Islamic prayer, we saw him walking beside the track; then he entered the main track.
When we saw the train hooting and he continued walking, we became alarmed. Some people threw water on him, while others even threw stone at him. But he did not pay attention. He merely shook them off and readjusted his cap.”
