No fewer than four persons have been confirmed dead in a

multiple crash on the Ogun State end of the Sagamu-Benin


Our correspondent learnt that a diesel-laden tanker on its

way to Lagos, crashed and spilled its content on the

highway on Monday night.

Five vehicles, which were said to be on their way towards

the Sagamu area, reportedly lost control when they ran over

the spilled diesel.

The vehicles included a vehicle of cement manufacturer,

Dangote Cement, which skidded off the slippery road and

crashed into a ditch.

Another truck, carrying tyres, also fell, spilling its contents

on the road.

This led to a gridlock on the expressway as all the vehicles

on the highway were diverted to a single lane.
