Two separate accidents on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway claimed one life and left nine others injured on Sunday.

In a statement on Monday, the Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun State, Mr Clement Oladele confirmed the incidents.

Oladele said the first crash occurred about 7 am around Isaara, near Ogere on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, involving a Toyota bus.

According to the FRSC boss, the accident involved two male adults and one female adult.

He said the driver drove under the influence of alcohol in excessive speed, which led to loss of control.

Oladele said two injured victims were rescued and taken to Victory Hospital, Ogere for medical attention.

Meanwhile, the second crash occurred about 11:50am on Sunday, around Fidiwo, near Ogunmakin on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The sector commander said the crash involved a Mazda E2200 bus and was also caused by excessive speed and loss of control.

He said eight people were involved in the accident when the bus hit a barrier after it lost control.

“Five male adults, one female adult and one male child sustained injuries, while one male adult died in the accident,” Oladele said.

According to him, five injured victims were rescued and taken to Victory Hospital, Ogere and two others to Idera Hospital, Sagamu.

He noted that the deceased was deposited at Idera Hospital morgue.

Oladele cautioned motorists to drive cautiously as vehicular movement was increasing due to gradual easing of the lockdown orders.

He further urged motorists to exercise restraint when travelling, especially along the Lagos-Ibadan and Sagamu-Ijebuode expressways, around the portions where traffic was diverted.
