Six passengers have been confirmed dead in three different road crashes in the corridor of the Lagos/ Ibadan Expressway and Sagamu/ Benin/Ore Expressway.

According to a press statement by the Chief Route Commander and Education Officer of the Ogun sector of the Federal Roads Safety Corps (FRSC), Florence Okpe, the first crash occurred around 03:00 am on Monday on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway around FIDIWO.

She said a total of four persons, all male, were involved in a crash. While two persons were recorded dead two were injured.

The suspected causes of the crash were wrongful overtaking, and overspeeding as the vehicle lost control and crashed.

While the injured victims were taken to Victory Hospital in Ogere, the corpses of the dead persons were deposited at the FOS morgue in Ipara.

The second crash occurred at about 5:18am on the Ore- Ijebu-Ode section of the expressway after Ajede Junction with a Toyota Hiace bus that has registration number RBC213XT.

Three people were confirmed dead in the accident while the cause of the lone accident was speed and fatigue

The injured victims were reportedly taken to Roona Hospital and the General Hospital, Ijebu-ode. The corpses of the dead were deposited at the same hospital’s morgue.

The third crash occurred on the Ore-Ijebu-ode expressway after Ajebamidele Bridge. Twenty-nine people were involved. Two persons were injured and one male adult was recorded dead while 26 others were unhurt.

While sympathising with the families of the crash victims, the Sector Commander of the FRSC, Ogun Sector Command, Anthony Uga, advised motorists to drive cautiously and have enough rest to avoid fatigue.
