One person was confirmed dead and several others injured in two separate accidents on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Sunday.
Mr Clement Oladele,  the Sector Commander,  Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Ogun, confirmed the incidents in a statement on Monday in Abeokuta.
According to the FRSC boss, the accident involved two male adults and one female adult.
He said that the driver drove under the influence of alcohol in excessive speed, which led to loss of control.
Oladele said that two injured victims were rescued and taken to Victory Hospital, Ogere for medical attention.
He said that the second crash occurred at about  11:50am on Sunday, around Fidiwo, near Ogunmakin on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The sector commander said that the crash involved a Mazda E2200 bus  marked WWD 89 XB and was also caused by excessive speed and loss of control.
He said that eight people were involved in the accident when the bus hit the barrier after it lost control.
“Five male adults,  one female adult and one male child sustained injuries, while one male adult died in the accident,” he said.
According to him, five injured victims were rescued and taken to Victory Hospital, Ogere and two others to Idera Hospital, Sagamu.
Oladele  cautioned motorists to drive cautiously as vehicular movement was  increasing due to gradual easing of the lockdown  orders.
He urged motorists to exercise  restraint when travelling, especially along the Lagos-Ibadan  and Sagamu-Ijebuode expressways, around the portions where traffic was diverted.
