Ten passengers in a commercial bus travelling to Ibadan in Oyo state have been killed in an accident.

Babatunde Akinbiyi, public relations officer (PRO) of the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), confirmed the incident to NAN on Wednesday.

He said the bus collided with a truck on Abeokuta/Ibadan road in Ogun, late Tuesday.

Akinbiyi said the truck driver only sustained injuries in the accident.

He said speeding and negligence on the part of the driver caused the accident.

“The truck with registration number BDG 7I4 XE was coming from Ibadan inward Abeokuta, while the Toyota Litace marked EKY I85 XH was travelling to Ibadan outward Abeokuta,” he said.

“Due to speed and negligence on the part of the truck driver, it had head on collision with the bus, leading to the accident that claimed the lives of all the passengers in the bus.

“Eleven people were involved in the crash; two females and eight males died in the accident, while driver of the truck was the only one injured.”

The TRACE spokesman said that the corpses of the victims had been deposited at the Adeoyo Hospital Morgue in Ibadan, while the injured was receiving treatment in the same hospital.
