30 crushed to death in fatal accident along Lagos-Ibadan highway

At least, 30 persons have been crushed to death in a fatal auto accident along the ever-busy Lagos-Ibadan highway late Thursday night.

Spokesman for the Federal Road Safety Corps, Bisi Kazeem, who confirmed the incident to newsmen in Abuja, said the accident occurred at about 8pm at Km 95 around the Elebolo Quary Area on the Ibadan axis of the road.

According to him, 10 other persons were injured in the crash involving 40 persons and two Mazda buses.

“The crash occurred at a construction site, and it resulted from route and speed violations.

“This has further underscored the Corps Marshal, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi’s advice to motorists to avoid night journeys, be careful around construction sites and drive within approved speed limits,” he said.

The FRSC spokesman said rescue operations by the FRSC officials, who arrived at the scene minutes after the incident, ended at 2:42am on Friday.

He disclosed that the corpses were deposited at Adeoyo Yemetu Hospital mortuary, Ibadan while injured persons were taken to the University College Hospital, Ibadan, and Adeoyo Yemetu Hospital for treatment.
