Ogun state FRSC commandant, Mr. Clement in a briefing, said the accident happened at about 6.50 a.m on Saturday.

“The four persons sustained various degrees of injury in the accident that involved another vehicle, a Mitsubishi car with registration number DKA 653 ZP, Oladele said.

The Commandant explained that the tanker which was burnt beyond recognition was heading from Lagos to Ibadan when it lost control due to dangerous driving and excessive speeding.

“The victims who had parts of their bodies burnt were rescued and taken to Victory Hospital, Ogere, for medical attention,’’ he said.

The FRSC boss, however, advised motorists to drive cautiously and adhere to all traffic rules and regulations that prohibit overtaking at diversion points and construction zones, to avoid crashes.
