Eid-el-Fitri not going according to plan for road users
Eid-el-Fitri is a day of celebration for the Muslim faithfuls to commemorate the end of the Ramadan fast and it is marked by festivities. However, the people of Sagamu were in for not one but two tragedies.
The first accident occurred in the early hours of Tuesday, 4:52 am, along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway at the AP petrol, Sagamu.
According to Mr. Clement Oladele, the Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps [FRSC]:
The accident happened as a result of speeding, an IVECO truck was involved in the crash. So far we can confirm three men were involved in the accident, while one died the other two sustained injuries and they were all taken to Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu
Meanwhile, the second crash occurred later in the afternoon, 3:54 pm, on the same expressway but this time at 'Ogumankin', involving a Toyota Hiace bus.
Mr. Clement Oladele further explained:
The crash involved seventeen  people, including six  males, eight  females and three  children but only six  people were injured while one  woman died in the accident. The injured were taken to Idera Hospital, Sagamu while the casualty was taken to FOS Morgue, Ipara, where the corpse was deposited
Mr. Clement ended his speech by forewarning road users to expect traffic to build upon the Lagos-Ibadan expressway and other connecting roads following the incident and also during the Eid-el-Fitri celebrations.
