He said : “The accident occurred at about 4:45am. near Ijebu Ode Toll Gate, leading to the death of four people trapped in the bus conveying passengers and woods.
“The crash is suspected to have been caused by loss of control, when a truck which had earlier parked, suddenly attempted to join the road corridor.
“A Mack truck moving in the same direction, in an attempt to avoid colliding with the truck entering the road, swerved away from the slow lane to the fast lane.
“The bus travelling behind on the fast lane was too fast and could not stop but ran into the truck that swerved from slow to the fast lane.
“The crash resulted in the death of the four passengers in the bus.”
While saying that the bodies of the victims have been taken to the mortuary, Oladele appealed to motorists to always apply caution when driving and obey traffic rules.
He said obstructions at the accident scene had been cleared by men of the FRSC to free heavy traffic in the area, just as he admonished motorists to desist from the habit of joining a road corridor suddenly or interfering with moving traffic.
