No fewer than seven people lost their lives, while 19 others were injured in a lone accident that occurred around at Badeku Junction on Ibadan-Ile-Ife Road of Ibadan, Oyo State.

The lone accident, which involved a truck with registration number, OYO: NRK 312 YR, occurred on Wednesday morning about 7.00 a.m.
According to News Agency of Nigeria, a witness at the scene of the accident, News Agency of Nigeria, said that the truck, carrying dozens of construction workers, was on speed going toward Ikire Road, when another truck, coming out of Badeku Village, crossed the express road.

Lateef said that an attempt made by the driver of the crashed truck to avoid collision caused it to somersault, thus flung the people on board into different directions.

NAN reports that men of the Nigerian Police and FRSC who arrived at the scene of the accident assisted in carrying the victims to the hospitals.

The Sector Commander of Federal Road Safety Corps in Oyo State, Mrs Unce Chukwurah, confirmed the accident in a telephone said the truck involved in the accident carried 26 labourers that were going for construction in the area.
