No less than four persons have lost their lives in an accident involving a luxurious bus and a truck on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Three other persons sustained varying degrees of injuries in the accident.
Mrs Florence Okpe, Public Education Officer, Federal Road Safety Corps in Ogun, confirmed the incident in Abeokuta.
She said the truck did not stop after the bus rammed into it while negotiating a bend around the “Kara’’ axis on the expressway.
A total of 21 people, 13 men and eight women, were involved in the accident.
The corpses were deposited at a morgue in Sagamu in Ogun, while the injured were taken to a nearby hospital, she said.
