The Lagos State Government on Wednesday stated that it would set up a panel of enquiry into the frequent accidents involving trailers and trucks in the state.
The government said the investigation was to ascertain if the accidents were not “deliberate acts of carnage.”
A statement by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Gbenga Omotosho, said the state was concerned about the upsurge in accidents on the expressways in the last three months.
He said, “The government is also curious about the persistence of tanker accidents at the Berger end of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway and the resultant gridlock that trails the incidents, spiralling through the entire Ikeja area of the state and traumatizing motorists and commuters.”
Omotosho said the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency had been mandated to continue to support Ogun State and the Federal Government in traffic and emergency management by providing evacuation expertise and equipment for quick removal of vehicles involved in crashes on the expressway.
