Ogun State governor’s wife, Olufunso Amosun, has expressed shock over the losses recorded in a multiple accident which occurred early Friday morning at the Berger end of Lagos/Ibadan Expressway.
The accident involved seven vehicles, including a fully loaded truck with registration number XZ 437 MUS, an 18-seater inter-state commuter bus with plate number XN 547 LSR, a Honda Accord salon car with number plate FKJ 645 AG, a Volkswagen Golf with a Lagos registration DN 504 EKY and a Toyota Sienna bus with a Lagos registration number GR 304 LND, branded by Joint Juicedrink.
Mrs. Amosun, who was travelling along the expressway at the time of the accident, arrived at the scene of the accident minutes after its occurrence.
In an emotion-laden voice, Mrs. Amosun said: “I was shocked at the fatality of this accident. This is unfortunate. As a mother, I feel highly concerned. I have got in touch with the emergency response team to quickly come to the rescue of the people at the scene. I sympathise with people involved in the accident. May God continue to protect us.”
The governor’s wife, who saw the trapped bodies of the two persons who occupied the front seat of the commuter bus under the truck, described the fatal accident as unfortunate.
