The FRSC in Delta confirmed the casualties.
Four persons were killed while three others were injured in a vehicle accident along the Agbor-Abraka Road in Delta on Saturday.
The incident reportedly occurred at about 6.30 a.m., and involved a commercial bus with registration number KRD 862 XC and two articulated vehicles with registration numbers XC 306 AUC and XC 842 AUC.
The Issele Uku Unit Assistant Area Commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Olusola Olusegun, confirmed the incident.
He said the two articulated vehicles collided while the bus rammed into them.
Mr. Olusegun said that two of the dead bodies had been recovered and deposited at the Obiaruku General Hospital while the three injured persons had been taken to the Agbor General Hospital.
He said that the two drivers of the articulated vehicles were trapped in their vehicles, adding that officials of the FRSC were trying to disentangle the trapped bodies.
The FRSC official said that officials of the FRSC had been at the scene of the accident, trying to remove the wreckage of the vehicles to make way for traffic to flow on the road.
He appealed to motorists on the road to be patient with FRSC officials as they worked to clear the road.
