Four people have been killed in the Molete area in Ibadan following a multiple auto crash.

The incident occurred on Sunday at Bode Market.

Uche Chukwurah, Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in the state, said, “The incident occurred at about 9:25 a.m. One male adult, a male child, and two female adults were victims of the accident.

“The suspected cause of the accident is brake failure and loss of control. It is a multiple crash that involved a truck, a Honda car, a motorcycle, and a tricycle.”

Two injured victims were taken to Lifeway Medical Centre, Bode and Molete Medical Centre, added Mr Chukwurah.

“The deceased, the male adult, and a female adult were taken by their relatives, while the male child and the other female adult were deposited at Adeoyo Mortuary,” said the FRSC commander.

The Oyo State Fire Service, a towing vehicle, officers of the Nigeria Police Force, and Amotekun Corps were on the ground to rescue the victims.

A witness, Farouk Ibrahim, said the brake of the truck failed at Oje Market.

Mr Ibrahim explained that the truck driver struggled to avoid a tricycle rider on the road when he suddenly lost control of the vehicle due to a brake failure.
