An eyewitness, Kunle Adisa, said the trailer rammed into a taxi which slowed down to navigate through the failed portion of the road.

He said the accident was caused by the trailer’s brake failure which made it impossible for the driver to avoid hitting the vehicle.

Both the corpses and two survivors, were taken to State Hospital, Adeoyo.

The spokesman of the Federal Road Safety Corps in the state, Seun Onijala, confirmed the incident, saying men of the corps in Akinyele had been dispatched to the scene.
