|Deji of Akure, Oba Aladetoyinbo Adelusi|
The accident, findings revealed, was occasioned by the action of the monarch’s driver who reportedly trailed a car parked in front of the palace to Italorun village along Idanre Road, where the car was eventually hit and its occupants killed.
Although the identities of the deceased were unknown as at press time, it was gathered that they were both brothers of the same mother who traveled from Ore in Odigbo Local Government Area of the state to Akure.
The deceased had reportedly parked their car in front of the Deji’s palace and the security men attached to the palace had ordered them to move the car out of the area, but they reportedly declined.
This, however, prompted the security men to call the attention of the driver to the situation, and after some arguments among them, the driver of the vehicle moved it out of the area.
Not satisfied with the development, the monarch’s driver, whose identity could not be ascertained at press time, reportedly trailed the car and eventually hit it, leading to the instant death of the driver of the car while his brother died at the hospital.
The accident almost caused pandemonium in the area as people made attempts to set the monarch’s vehicle ablaze but for the timely intervention of security agents in the area.
Chief Press Secretary to the monarch, Mr. Michael Adeyeye, while reacting to the incident, said the accident occurred outside the palace, adding that “the matter has been resolved and there is no cause for alarm.”
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) for the state police command, Mr. Femi Joseph, said he was not aware of the incident and promised to find out the details of the incident.
