How FRSC caused panic in Lagos with false news

FRSC The rumour mill was thick on Monday morning to the effect that ‘a fully loaded BRT bus crashed and plunged into the Lagoon from the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos.’

This came after FRSC tweeted the false news.

The managing director of LAGBUS Assets Management Ltd., operators of LAGBUS buses, Mr. Babatunde Disu, also denied any such incident.

Disu told the News Agency of Nigeria that no bus in the LAGBUS fleet, as well as its sister transport company, BRT, was involved in any accident on Monday.

“Some people can be mischievous! Nothing of such has happened and nobody is praying for such a disaster,” Disu said.

In the same vein, Mr. Kolawole Ojelabi, a consultant with the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority, regulators of the BRT, told NAN that the “malicious rumour was only the imagination of some weird people.”
