Following the train and BRT bus collision in Lagos State on Thursday morning, there is renewed concern about the country’s lack of adequate medical facilities.
WITHIN NIGERIA previously reported that the train collided with a Lagos State Government bus, killing three people and injuring several others.
A video that went viral showed victims of the train and bus accidents being treated on the floor outside the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital.
The injured victims were taken to a general hospital for treatment.
It is common knowledge that LASUTH frequently has a lack of available bed spaces, which has sparked outrage among many netizens.
