From what he said, the tragic incident that happened around 7:40 am was reportedly caused by reckless driving, brake failure and excessive speeding on the part of a non-registered motorcycle. As a result, the motorcycle crashed into a Camry car with the registration number FKY-733 GF in the rear. The bike fell across the road and the 2 passengers on it were crushed to death by a truck that was coming from behind as at the time. The rider of the motorcycle escaped death as he only sustained injuries from the accident.
Akinbiyi revealed that 6 people were involved in this accident, with 1 injured, while 2 people lost their lives. From the eyewitness’s report, the bike was coming from Ogijo axis, moving towards Sagamu when the rider tried to overtake the Camry, which backfired considering he had already overtaken 3 trailers.
