Truck kills two students of same parents in Ogun

Tragedy struck on Thursday when two students of the same parents were crushed to death in an accident involving a motorcycle and a diesel truck on the Sagamu-Ikorodu Road in Ogun State.

The Public Relations Officer of the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, Babatunde Akinbiyi, confirmed the incident.

Akinbiyi explained that the incident, which involved a Man diesel truck, with number plate, SHR 35 XA, and a Bajaj motorcycle, with number plate, LSD 638 QB, happened around 7.57am and was caused by recklessness and impatience on the part of the motorcycle rider.

He said, “According to an eyewitness, the four persons on the motorcycle were students of the Idagba Community High School, Sotubo, and Wesley Primary School, Ogijo, with one of them riding the motorcycle conveying him and the others to school.

“In an attempt for the motorcyclist to find his way between two trailers, the motorcycle fell on its side and the rear tyre of one of the trailers ran over them.

“Two of the passengers on the motorcycle, who were brothers from the same parents, died on the spot.”

Akinbiyi said the corpses were deposited in a morgue of the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu, while the injured were taken to the same hospital for treatment.

He commiserated with the family of the deceased, while appealing to commercial motorcyclists to exercise patience and caution and avoid reckless and dangerous riding.
