According to PM News, the LAGBUS which took off from the Deeper Life Conference Centre, Klm 42, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway and was Lagos-bound, caught fire on Otedola Bridge, Berger.
VON gathered that the passengers in the bus were coming back from a four-day retreat. The passengers were said to have ran out of the bus before the fire took the bus over completely.
A witness who craved anonymity said the bus might have caught fire as a result of over heating as it was fulled to capacity when the fire started. The worshipers abandoned their loads , ran for their lives in order not to be burnt with the bus. Officials of the fire servicemen arrived on time to assist in evacuating the passengers from the burning bus.
The witness said when worshipers suspected that a fire was about to be ignited, the asked the driver to stop and that when he did, they found every available means of escape before the fire fully engulfed the bus.
Worshipers were said to have gathered at one side of the road singing praises to God for saving them from being burnt to death after they just left an inspiring retreat where Pastor Williams Kumuyi of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry prayed for them for God’s blessings and that they would not die untimely.
Although the bus got burnt down completely, no life was lost.
