3 Killed, 12 Injured in Lagos and Ogun Accidents

Three people have been reported dead, with 12 more injured in two different accidents in Lagos and Ogun States.

On Wednesday, around Old Toll Gate, Ota, Ogun State, two men were killed in a ghastly accident involving two motorcycles, two commercial vehicles and a truck, while six people also sustained various forms of injuries.

Another accident happened again on Thursday, when a fuel tanker and a commercial bus clashed on Otedola Bridge, Lagos, leaving 1 woman dead, and six more people injured, including a 9 year-old-boy.

Sources said that the bus was on the inside lane going to Berger, when the tankers brake failed, thereby clashing into the bus.

On their part, the Lagos State Government is committed to ending the series of tanker-related accidents in the State, by educating operators of the downstream sector on the need for safety amongst their operators.
Speaking at a virtual meeting, the Commissioner for Energy & Mineral Resources, Mr. Olalere Odusote, said: “Governor Sanwo-Olu is keen to see the downstream sector continue to flourish in the state, but operators must stay within the framework of safety provided by the regulators and the laws of the state.”
