The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), has confirmed that a BRT bus, that was conveying passengers across the Third Mainland Bridge, has fallen off, into the Lagos Lagoon.
The FRSC took to their Twitter account to break the unfortunate news. The tweet read, "A fully loaded BRT bus fell off the 3rd mainland bridge into the Lagos lagoon, 26-11-12. Rescue work in progress. Motorists be cautious."
It will recalled that the bridge – which is the longest in West Africa – was re-opened on November 6, after it was partially closed down for repair works, that lasted over three months.
