According to Ahmed, six persons were declared dead out of the 39 people who were involved in the accident, 25 of which are males and the remaining 14 being females.
He said, “The suspected causes of the multiple crashes were wrongful overtaking and excessive speed on the part of the Luxurious bus driver which led to the loss of control.
“The luxurious bus hit the incoming Sienna car and the Mazda bus.
“Immediately, the driver ran away because all the occupant in the Sienna vehicle lost their lives while those in the Mazda bus sustained injuries.”
The remains of the departed souls were deposited at the morgue of the General Hospital Ijebu Ode while four others who sustained severe injuries were rushed to the same hospital for medical treatment.
He took the chance to urge drivers to desist from careless driving and over speeding. The FRSC boss sympathized with the families of the victims and adjured them to reach out to the FRSC Command in Ogbere to claim the belongings of the victims.
