Accident Claims 10 Lives In Ogun State




Not fewer than 10 persons lost their lives in an accident involving two trucks and two commercial vehicles at Ogunmakin area of Lagos/Ibadan Expressway in Ogun State on Friday.


Mr Adegoke Adetunji, the FRSC Sector Commander in Ogun, who confirmed the accident, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the two buses rammed into the trucks at about 5a.m.

According to him, 10 persons were confirmed dead in the accident.

“We went to the scene and met the crash which involved two trucks and two commercial buses

“A Mazda bus with registration number MAY 152 XA and a Toyota bus with registration number LND 21 XQ, were travelling to Ibadan before they rammed into the trucks.

“We understood that the first truck had broken down in the night and was rammed into by the second truck while the two commercial buses also rammed into the trucks around 5a.m.

“Motorists should desist from travelling at night because visibility is limited. Broken down trucks should always use reflective signs so that oncoming drivers would be able to see them.

“I appeal to the general public to always call our number 122 anytime they see any broken down vehicle on the highways’’, he said.

Adetunji said that corpses of victims had been deposited at the Fakoya Mortuary in Sagamu. (NAN)
