One man died on Thursday in an accident along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway, Ogun State.The multiple crash occurred at about 07:15 am around the Kara bridge, injuring a woman.

The Federal Road Safety Corps in Ogun State said 22 persons were involved in the crash, comprising 14 male adults and eight female adults.

“One female adult was injured and unfortunately, one male adult was recorded dead from the multiple crash, while the remaining persons were unhurt,” said Florence Okpe, FRSC Spokesperson in Ogun.

Okpe disclosed that the injured victim was taken to the Accident and Emergency Centre, Ojota, adding that the corpse was taken away by the Hausa community for burial according to Islamic rites.

Okpe blamed the multiple accident on brake failure on the part of the truck.
