Two persons lost their lives in an accident that involved a truck and a motorcycle on Monday at Arigbajo, on the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, Ogun State on Tuesday.
Mr Babatunde Akinbiyi, Public Relation Officer, Ogun Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, said this on Tuesday in a statement issued to newsmen.
Akinbiyi explained that Iveco truck with registration number, KNN 357 ZY and a Bajaj motorcycle marked TRE 301 VV were heading to Ifo-Sango-Ota axis when the unfortunate incident happened.
He said the motorcycle rider rammed into the truck in the course of losing control and concentration, thus killing the two passengers on the bike.
“Unfortunately, the motorcycle rider rode into the track of the truck which led to the crushing of the two passengers.
“The corpses of the victims have been deposited at Ifo General Hospital, Ogun, by the Federal Road Safety Corps,’’ he stated.
Akinbiyi added that it took the quick intervention of law enforcement agents for hoodlums not to set the truck ablaze.
He advised motorcyclists and motorists to always exercise patience and shun reckless driving that could lead to loss of lives, especially as the Yuletide approaches. (
