A motorcyclist and two male school children were reported to have been crushed to death along the Oru-Ago Iwoye Road on Friday by a truck transporting granite.

The motorcyclist was conveying the pupils to school on his bike at about 7.30am when the accident occurred.

Another female pupil, who was also being conveyed to school on the same motorcycle, was said to have sustained injuries in the accident.

The Ogun State Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, Clement Oladele, said the accident occurred on the bridge at Oru.

He said the driver of the truck was speeding and driving dangerously and crushed the cyclist and the children in the process.

The Public Relations Officer, Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, Babatunde Akinbiyi, also confirmed the incident.

He said, “A male adult and two male schoolchildren were crushed to death by a truck while another female pupil was injured this morning along the Oru-Ago Iwoye Road.

“The cyclist was taking the children to school when the truck rammed into them.

“The injured female child was taken to Blessed Hospital, Oru, Ijebu, while the corpses of the victims were taken to the mortuary of the State Hospital, Ijebu-Igbo.”

However, Oladele told our correspondent that a mob, made up youths and students of higher institutions living in the area, who had gathered at the scene of the incident, set the truck ablaze.

He said another truck that was passing at the scene was also set ablaze.

The police and the army were later called on to restore peace and order in the area.
