Akeem explained that a trailer with registration number KTU 270 XZ crushed a commercial motorcyclist to death at the Animasaun area on Ota-Idiroko road.

The unit commander said that the motorcyclist was still trapped under the trailer.

According to him, the corpse of the commercial motorcyclist had been deposited at Ifo General Hospital.

The commercial motorcyclist and two others were involved in the crash, but that the other two victims did not sustain any injury.

Akeem regretted those other motorcyclists had completely blocked the road.

He further said that several appeals to allow cranes to access the crash scene proved abortive.

Akeem, who blamed the accident on reckless driving and speeding on the part of the trailer driver, enjoined motorists to always desist from the nefarious acts that could lead to unnecessary loss of lives on the road.
