The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Osun Command, on Tuesday said nine persons lost their lives in an accident that occurred on the Ikirun-Ilaodo highway.

The Sector Commander, Mr Henry Benamaisia, said the accident occurred around Courage Petroleum Company premises in Inisa at about 6:35 p.m on Monday morning.

Benamaisia said a Mitsubushi Canter Orange vehicle, with registration number, MNA 606 XB, drove in a dangerous manner that led to the death of the nine persons.

He said the vehicle, loaded with some goods coming from Makera in Niger State, was speeding excessively and the driver lost control before the incident happened.

“A total of 15 persons were involved in the accident with five persons injured and one unhurt,” Benamaisia said.

According to him, the dead victims have been evacuated to Orotunde Hospital mortuary while the injured victims are being treated in that hospital.

He cautioned road users against excessive speeding and total disobedient of the road safety regulations.

Benamaisia, however, commended the effort of other sister agencies in ensuring that normalcy returned to the route involved.
