The multiple crash occurred at about 5.30a.m. and involved 28 persons and three vehicles.

He said the vehicles involved were a Ford with registration number ETU409XA, Daf model truck with registration number KRD908XN and an unregistered red colour truck.

“The fatal crash which involved these multiple vehicles was caused by route violation (one way driving),” the sector commander said.

Mr. Oladele warned reckless drivers to desist from route violation and deliberately killing innocent motorists.
