The tribunal of inquiry into the July 4, 2014 vandalism of the Bus Rapid Transit vehicles in Lagos State on Monday submitted its report to Governor Babatunde Fashola, saying soldiers perpetrated the act.

The submission came eight months after the state government set up a three-man tribunal chaired by Justice Ebenezer Adebajo (retd) to investigate the cause of the incident which occurred at the Palmgrove area of the state.

Adebajo, while reading the tribunal findings, said, “The accident occurred on July 3, 2014, when a soldier – late Lance Corporal Matthew Ishaya – ran his motorcycle, with registration number, MUS-565 QB, into a stationary BRT bus, MO63, at the Palmgrove bus stop on the Ikorodu Road.”

He noted that the accident occurred outside the BRT corridor, adding, “the soldier caused his death.”
