Two prospective students of the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, on Thursday lost their lives in a road crash on their way to formalise their admission into the university.
The spokesman of Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, TRACE, Babatunde Akinbiyi, who disclosed this to Premium Times, said a two-month old baby also died in the accident.
Mr. Akinbiyi said the crash involved a commercial Mazda bus with registration number TRE 556XA and a truck with registration number LND 564XP.
The accident occurred in Ibara village near an interchange along the Abeokuta- Sagamu expressway when the truck, loaded with granite, rammed into the bus coming from Sango-Ota, which had parked by the roadside to enable a passenger ease herself.
