The Federal Road Safety Commission has just stated through its Twitter handle @FRSCNigeria that a fully loaded BRT bus just fell off the Third Mainland Bridge into the Lagos lagoon.

The bus was “fully loaded with passengers”, according to reports.

However, a correspondent just spoke with the Lagos commissioner for transport, who said on the telephone that the reports are “totally false and malicious”

More details as we confirm them.
