The accident involved an Iveco truck and a Toyota Hiace bus before Ishara bridge, Ogere.

Mr Clement Oladele, the Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), confirmed the incident to the News Agency of Nigeria

(NAN) in Abeokuta on Tuesday.

Oladele noted that the accident occurred around 8:10 p.m was caused by route violation, saying that the driver of the bus drove against

traffic around the construction zone and had a head-on collision with the truck.

The FRSC boss noted that six people, all male, were involved in the accident with three of them sustaining injuries while three of them are dead.

“The crash involved two vehicles, a blue coloured Iveco truck with registration number LSR 908 XF and a white coloured Toyota Hiace bus

with registration number FST 96 XF.

“The suspected cause of the crash was route violation (driving against traffic) around the construction zone, considering too that it was

even dark at night,” he said.

Oladele stated that the injured victims were rescued to Victory Hospital, Ogere, for medical attention while the corpses of the

deceased were deposited at the Ishara Morgue.
