3 die in Ogun multiple accident

20 July 2012, 07:17

 Two police officers attached to the Ogun Police Command on Wednesday  died  in a multiple auto accident  which occurred at  Itori village on the Abeokuta-Lagos Expressway.

The News Agency of  Nigeria (NAN) reports that the officers  were identified as  Insp. Thomas Olorunjuwon and Insp. Ojo John Bull.

NAN also reports that FRSC officials  were sighted at  the scene of the accident  controlling traffic which had built up on the highway.

The Police  Public Relations Officer, ASP Muyiwa Adejobi,  confirmed the death of the two officers  who were returning from Sango Ota where they had gone for official duties.

He said the command would ensure a befitting burial for the dead officers.

The FRSC Unit Commander, Fatai Bakare, told NAN that apart from the police officers, one other person was killed  while 10 persons sustained injuries.

Bakare, who  said  two vehicles and a stationary articulated vehicle  were involved in the accident, blamed the incident  on dangerous driving.

``The police vehicle rammed into a stationary truck before another bus coming from Lagos also rammed into it,’’ he said.

He said 13 males and three females were involved in the accident, adding that the bodies of  victims had been deposited at the mortuary.
