Mrs Kudirat Ibrahim, Sector Commander, in a statement issued by the command’s Spokesperson, Mrs Agnes Ogungbemi, in Osogbo said the accident occurred about 4km from Iwaraja junction on Ipetu-Ijesa highway on Wednesday at 10:0 p.m.

“Two persons lost their lives in the process while three other persons got injured and were rushed to Wesley Hospital, Ilesa, for further treatment.
