The Ogun State Sector Commander of Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, Clement Oladele, confirming the incident, blamed the crash on route violation and over speeding.
“The fatal crash, was caused by route violation which we all refer to as one-way driving.
“We have always warned drivers to desists from this reckless act which ultimately results in killing of innocent lives.
“The FRSC would sanction heavily any driver caught driving against traffic and we are calling on passengers to also complain against such drivers breaking this violation.
