Three people were pronounced dead and 12 were injured in an accident in Lagos and Ogun.

 Two men died and six were injured Wednesday evening in the Old Toll Gate area in Ota, Ogun, as a result of a multiple accident involving a truck, two commercial buses and two motorcycles.

 Similarly, a woman was killed yesterday morning, and six passengers, including a nine-year-old, were injured after a refueling tanker collided with an interstate bus in which they were on the Otedola Bridge in Lagos, it was found that the bus was inside Berger when the tanker could not handle the brake and rammed it.

 The nation reports that a bus that was not on duty could send passengers to Lagos, despite a presidential directive prohibiting interstate travel, further evidence that security agents at border checkpoints are not my job the The government of Lagos said it intends to stop the continuous truck accidents that claimed their lives.

 Governor Babajide Sanwo Olu said “enough is enough,” as the state government organized stakeholder engagement with key representatives of the downstream energy sector to increase safety awareness among operators, given recent oil tanker fire incidents.

 Speaking at a virtual meeting, the Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources, Mr. Olalere Odusote, said: “The Governor of Sanvo Olu is interested in keeping the downstream sector prosperous in the state, but operators must remain within the security framework provided by state regulatory authorities and laws ".

 Odusote said the seminar was organized to consider the recurrence of such dangerous incidents and to find effective and lasting solutions that would be consistent with the interests of stakeholders.

 Commissioner for Transport, Dr. Frederick Oladeinde, said that appropriate infrastructure to facilitate vehicle testing would be provided at mutually agreed designated points to support the downstream sector.
