“The accident involved eight people: six males and two females. Three males died in the accident, while two people sustained various degrees of injury,” Akinbiyi said.

The TRACE spokesman said the corpses of the victims were taken to the Federal Medical Centre mortuary in Abeokuta, and the injured persons were admitted to the same hospital.
