Ajibade said that the accident which happened at about 9:59 a.m. on Friday, around Iyana-Iyesi on Idiroko road, involved a tipper, a jeep and a tricycle.

He explained that a tipper with registration number MUS 217 YL lost control due to brake failure and rammed into a tricycle marked LAR 304 VD and an Acura Jeep with registration number KTU 636 DQ.

He said that four persons comprising three males and a female were involved in the accident which resulted in death of one person, while three others sustained injuries.

“The corpse of the male victim has been deposited at the morgue of State Hospital Ota in Ogun, while the survivors are also receiving treatment at same hospital,” Ajibade said.

He said that normalcy had been restored and the vehicles towed to the Onipanu Police, Ogun, for free flow of traffic in the area.

Ajibade advised motorists and other road users to always exercise patience as the yuletide period approaches to avoid loss of lives and property.
