Horror in Ilorin as a Kano to Lagos passenger train on Sunday crushed a commercial motorcyclist and his passenger to death in the Kwara State Capital.

A correspondent, who witnessed the incident, reports that the tragedy occurred along Kangu-lle-Araromi road in the llorin West Local Government Area.

The train crushed the motorcyclist and his passenger, a middle-aged woman, when the motorcyclist tried to cross the rail line around 11 a.m.

The train later stopped some metres from the spot of the accident but there was nothing anybody could do as the victims had died instantly.

Hundreds of people, including motorists and commercial motorcyclists, trooped to the scene of the accident to catch a glimpse of the victims.

Some residents, including children, burst into tears when they sighted the lifeless bodies of the victims.

Some members of the commercial motorcyclist association at the gate of the Michael lmoudu lnstitute of Labour, identified the motorcyclist as one of their members.

Policemen from the Ganmo Police Station later evacuated the two bodies.
