“The actual cause of the truck which went on fire could not be ascertain because it happened at night,” he said.

He, however, said the likely cause of the trailer colliding with the truck might be speeding and wrongful overtaking. According to him, the burnt victims are being referred to the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital for treatment, adding that the RS11.31 Ogbomoso and RS11.312 Oolo Commands conducted rescued operation.

“Other agency that carried out the rescue operation are the Fire Service and Odo-Oba Lolice Division,” he said.

Adekanye called on motorists to shun night travelling, wrongful overtaking and dangerous driving to ensure safety on the road
