Seventeen persons have died in a road accident that occurred on the Lagos/Ibadan expressway in the early hours of Friday.
The Public Education Officer of the Federal Roads Safety Corps (FRSC), Ogun State Sector, Florence Okpe, confirmed this to Channels Television.
Okpe, however, noted that the total number of people involved in the incident is yet to be ascertained as many got burnt beyond recognition.
According to her, there was a head-on collision between two vehicles which was a result of route violation and dangerous driving.
The Sector Commander, Ahmed Umar, also noted that the crash was avoidable.
Umar, however, commiserated with families of the victims and enjoined them to contact FRSC Ogere for more information about the crash
