First of all I would like to Thank God for saving me..Cause I witnessed this myself. Two persons have been confirmed dead in the road traffic accident around Danko Village along Lagos-Ibadan expressway involving three tankers and seven articulated vehicles.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) sector commander in Ogun, Ayobami Omiyale said that the accident occurred at about 12:30 noon on Thursday.
According to him, 30 people were involved in the accident that claimed two unidentified persons who were burnt beyond recognition. The commander noted that five people were critically injured in the accident that was caused by dangerous driving which subsequently led to the fire outbreak from one of the articulated vehicles.

He said that the inferno was extinguished by men of the fire service who were immediately contacted, adding that FRSC was still trying to remove the burnt vehicles and controlling traffic to ease congestion.
He also disclosed that, while the injured were receiving treatment at nearby hospitals, the burnt bodies had been deposited at the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OOUTH), Sagamu.
