The accident which killed the family of the Nigerian filmmaker occurred, after a commercial bus travelling to Lagos from Ibadan collided with a tanker laden with petroleum product on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The accident took place two days after a similar in­cident occurred at Boluwa­ji on the same expressway in Ibadan when a Lagos-bound bus somersaulted several times and caught fire. In the first accident on Sunday evening, all the passengers, accord­ing to road safety officials, escaped death, while the driver was trapped and burnt beyond recognition.

Daily Sun gathered that in the latest accident, immediately the two vehicles collided, the fuel tanker exploded, making it impossible for any of the passengers to survive.

The road accident was said to have occurred in the vicinity of a gas compa­ny, Southern Energy, along the expressway in Ibadan, at 8:12p.m. The incident reportedly led to traffic congestion on the highway. Many commuters going to either La­gos or Ibadan were held up for several hours in the traffic jam.

The combined team of the police, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) diverted the traffic till the wreckage of the accident was cleared off the road yesterday afternoon.

Spokesperson of FRSC, Oyo State command, Mr. Seun Onijala, who con­firmed the accident said all the passengers in the bus with registration number LAGOS AGL 866 XA, were burnt beyond recognition.
