Check out the scary post;
I am reporting live from a brt bus at Agric Ikorodu where the pilot and ticketer picked a fight with some passengers . Afterwards the pilot drove us down to their pack at Majidun Idiroko, locked the passengers in the bus, switched off the engine and lights thereby keeping everyone in darkness. An asthmatic woman in the bus had crisis and one of the passengers was beaten to a pulp.

Can you guys imagine these…even the way the pilot drove from Agric to their park….i don’t know, am just perplexed…what’s our country turning into that Brt officials parade themselves as educated touts.
The bus number is 214. Please these officials need to be punished so they will serve as example to the others
