The National Emergency Management Agency on Wednesday confirmed the death of one person around Redemption Camp and Sagamu Interchange in Ogun State.
The spokesman for NEMA, Mr. Ibrahim Farinloye, urged anybody whose relation has been missing to approach Federal Road Safety Corps, Mowe Unit Command, Ogun State, for identification of a recovered body.
“The body of a middle-aged man was found by the road side directly opposite Christopher University, before the Redemption Camp, on the Ibadan-Lagos expressway, this morning.
“The attention of the FRSC Mowe Unit Command was drawn to the body location by NEMA for recovery, so that relations could have easy access to the body at the Unit Command,’’ Farinloye said in a statement.
In another development, Farinloye said that two different accidents occurred on the long bridge and at Kara-Isheri in Ogun State.
“On the long bridge, a lorry with registration number SMK 550XN laden with iron wire crashed onto a 24-seater bus with registration number LSR 653 XT.
“One middle-aged woman and a man sustained injuries but were treated on initial First Aid by NEMA and FRSC officials before being taken to Accidents and Emergency Medical Centre at Lagos Toll Gate, by 7Up.
“Also, another 14-seater commercial bus painted in Lagos colour carrying full passengers, with registration number SMK 349 XR had brake failure at Kara-Isheri, Ogun State and hit a commercial motorcyclist.
“The cyclist sustained minor injury,’’ Farinloye said.
He seized the opportunity to appeal to beach revelers and other fun seekers to observe utmost caution and keep eagle eye on the children for their safety.
“Beach and swimming pool operators are enjoined to be vigilant and ensure that their rescuers are on beach and swimming pool sides at all times in case of emergencies,’’ he said.
