No fewer than four persons died in two separate road crashes in Ogun State on Friday, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has said.

In the first accident, an okada rider and his passenger were killed when a bus rammed into them, along Ore-Benin-Ijebu-Ode expressway.

The driver of the vehicle was said to have lost control due to a burst tyre.

The Ogun FRSC Sector Commander, Ahmed Umar, on Saturday, said the uncontrolled vehicle rammed into the motorcycle as it was driving against traffic.

Others who sustained injuries in the accident have been taken to the Hope Hospital, J4, while the dead have been deposited at the mortuary.

In another development, eight people were reportedly involved in a road accident in the Alafia area at J4 axis of the expressway.

Two persons died in the road crash while five others sustained injuries.
