The accident that occurred on Monday along Lagos-Ibadan expressway has claimed the lives of five persons while 15 others sustained injuries.

According to reports, the accident occurred around Ogunmakin, near the Total gas station at about 4pm, between a Mazda bus marked KSF477XK and a Mitsubushi car with registration number MUS639DK.

It was gathered that the accident which took the lives of four males and a female caused a serious traffic congestion on the expressway, as the vehicles involved were said to have blocked the road.

It took the intervention of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) officials in Ogun State to evacuate the vehicles and normalise traffic flow.

Confirming the accident, the FRSC Sector Commander said 20 people were involved in the mishap.

He added that the injured were rushed to Ife-Oluwa Hospital and Ibadan Centre Hospital.

He attributed the cause of the accident to wrongful overtaking, urging drivers to exercise patience.

“Divers are advised to be patient and avoid wrongful overtaking as they drive through construction areas,” he said.
