Confirming the incident, the Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission, (FRSC), Ogun State, Clement Oladele, said that out of the 37 corps members, 19 of them comprising nine males and ten females were injured.

According to him, the corps members were heading to Sango en route Ibadan-Lagos Expressway in a white coloured coaster bus when the accident occurred around the Danco petrol station axis.

Confirming that none of them died, but some sustained ”serious injuries,” Mr Oladele also revealed that the accident was caused by speed violation and loss of control by the driver.

He said the injured victims were evacuated to FRSC Accident Emergency Clinic at Sagamu.

The official disclosed that four of the victims with ”more serious injuries” were referred for further checks at Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OOUTH) Sagamu.

The Ogun state police command also advised corps members to always caution their drivers especially during this raining season and where such drivers refused to heed caution, they should call FRSC toll free number 122 for necessary disciplinary action against such erring drivers.
