The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) Sunday, confirmed that no casualty was recorded when a section of a pedestrian bridge was damaged at Yaba on Saturday.

Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria, the Director-General of the Agency, Dr Femi Oke-Osanyintolu said that no life was lost during the incident, adding that the agency carried out prompt recovery operations to ensure free flow of traffic in the area.

“An empty truck with registration number AAA 364 XS crashed onto the pedestrian bridge at the bus stop as a result of brake failure, thereby damaging the bridge railings.
