Seven persons on Sunday night were burnt to death in an accident involving two vehicles around the Sandrete Ogunmakin area of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Mr. Ahmed Umar, Ogun Sector Commander, who confirmed the accident to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday, said that three others sustained various degrees of injuries in the accident.
He explained that the crash, which occurred at about 10.40 p.m. involved a truck and a bus both without registration numbers.
He also confirmed that a total of 10 persons were involved in the accident and seven were burnt beyond recognition.
Umar blamed the accident on route violation, adding that the truck and the bus had a head-on collision which resulted in a fire outbreak.
“The survivors were taken to Victory Hospital, Ogere, for medical attention,” he said.
The FRSC commander, therefore, cautioned motorists to desist from driving against traffic as there was great danger in route violation.
