Four persons have died in a lone accident involving a Mazda bus along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

The fatal crash occurred at about 07:50 am around Oniworo, after the Foursquare camp, Ogun State.

LEAKBLAST reports that 20 persons were involved in the accident.

While the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) could identify that 15 men and one woman were injured, the remaining four passengers were “burnt beyond recognition.”

Ogun FRSC spokesperson, Florence Okpe, confirmed that the lone crash involved a Mazda bus with registration number APP934XH.

“The suspected cause of the crash was excessive speed which led to loss of control and the Mazda bus rammed into the median strip (road divider) and went into flames,” Okpe explained.

The Ogun FRSC Sector Commander, Ahmed Umar, has once again cautioned motorists on speed violations while advising them to obey traffic rules and regulations.

Umar sympathized with the families of the deceased, praying to God to strengthen them to bear the losses.
