Train crushes father of three to death



A father of three, Mr. Fatai Bolaji, was yesterday crushed to death by a train at Ikeja area of Lagos. Although nobody knew how the incident occurred, the man was suspected to be listening to music with his ear-piece, which blocked his ears as he walked on the rail between Ile-Zik and the railway crossing at Ikeja when he was crushed to death about 9a.m.
