Kunle Ajisebutu, spokersperson of the command, said that 11 others including three children sustained severe injuries.

“Corpses of the dead have been deposited at Adeoyo General Hospital, Yemetu, while the injured were taken to the Ibadan Central Hospital, and the University College Hospital, (UCH) Ibadan for medical attention,” he said.

“Police investigation has begun. The victims were evacuated by a combined team of police men from the Toll Gate Police Division and men of the FRSC.
