Two persons have been confirmed dead while two others sustained injuries in a lone accident at Iyana-Ilogbo on the Lagos-Abeokuta expressway in Ogun State.
The Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun State, Anthony Uga, confirmed the accident on Saturday, February 10, 2024.
Uga disclosed that three males and a female were in the Mitsubishi SUV involved in the accident which occurred on Friday night.
He said two of the male occupants of the vehicle died while a male and the only female in it sustained various degrees of injuries.
“The corpses were taken away by family members of the victims, while the survivors were taken to a nearby hospital,” the FRSC official said.
He added that the mechanical fault that led to the loss of control of the vehicle was the most likely cause of the accident.
The FRSC sector commander advised motorists to always check their vehicles and ensure that they are in good condition before plying the roads.
Uga also enjoined motorists to adhere strictly to traffic rules and regulations to stem unnecessary loss of lives.
