Seven burnt to death in Lagos-Ibadan expressway crash


No fewer than seven people were on Saturday night burnt to death in a crash that involved two vehicles around the Sandrete Ogunmakin area, on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

The Ogun sector commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Ahmed Umar confirmed the crash on Monday, in Ota.

Mr Umar added that three other persons sustained various degrees of injuries in the crash.

The sector commander explained that the crash which occurred at 10.40 p.m. involved a truck and a bus both without a registration number.

He added that a total of 10 persons were involved in the crash.

Mr Umar added that seven persons were burnt beyond recognition only to be identified with skulls, while the other three sustained various degrees of injuries.

The sector commander blamed the crash on route violation, adding that the truck and the bus had a head-on collision which resulted in a fire outbreak.

“The survivors were taken to Victory Hospital, Ogere, for medical attention,” he said.

The FRSC commander cautioned motorists to desist from driving against traffic as there was great danger in route violation.

Mr Umar also commiserated with the family of the crash victims and urged them to contact FRSC Ogunmakin Area for more information about the injured victims.
