Naija News learnt that seven persons had died at the horrible accident which happened in Bode-Saadu, a town in Kwara State along the Lagos-Kaduna expressway
According to the report, no one escaped the accident which happened between a fuel tanker and a corolla car, as all the seven people involved died at the spot of the incident.
Reporting the incident, Mr Owoade revealed, “Early this morning, we got a report that there was a road traffic crash which occurred at the Bode-Saadu-Olooru axis at a village called Lumoh.”
“Sadly, all seven people involved in the accident lost their lives; there were four males and three females in the car.”
