Mr. Ojuoro Olushola, the Mowe-Ibafo Divisional Leader of Follow, told the News Organization of Nigeria (NAN) in Ota, Ogun Express, that the mishap happened at about 8.10 a.m.
Olushola said the accident that involved a mini truck with registration number APP-312 XP and a Mazda Bus marked KJA-670 XM was due to speed and careless driving.
He said the Mazda bus rammed into the truck that was making a U-turn at Aseese, on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
“18 passengers were involved in the accident that led to the death of one person, while one other person sustained various degrees of injuries.
“The corpse of the victim has been handed over to the family members while the survivor is receiving treatment at Famobis Hospital,”
He said the vehicles had been towed off the road through the assistance of officials of TRACE, Federal Road Safety Corps, Police, and Army to ease the free flow of traffic in the area.
Ojuoro encouraged drivers to cling carefully to all traffic rules and guidelines just as against speeding to stay away from pointless loss of lives and property.
