Road Accident Claims Four In Ogun

Four people have been presumed dead in a lone accident that occurred at Atoyo along Sagamu/Benin Expressway.

The Spokesman of Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, TRACE, Mr. Babatunde Akinbiyi who confirmed the incident in a statement in Abeokuta said the accident involved a commercial bus whose registration number could not be identified.

Mr. Akinbiyi explained that the personnel of the corps, FRSC and Police had diverted the road following a tanker loaded with black oil had spilled its contents on the road due to the leakage from the tanker.

He said the driver of the bus conveying fourteen passengers failed to obey the traffic, rammed into the tree and caught fire.

Mr, Akinbiyi who attributed the accident to brake failure said four passengers in the bus were burnt beyond recognition while the remaining people in the bus could not be found.
