According to Okunbor, the accident was as a result of over-speeding by the drivers.

“The vehicles ran into each other at the intersection of the road,” he said.

He added that the crash involved an unregistered Ford Ranger SUV and a Nissan SUV with registration number KD 499 GE.

“They had a head-on collision at the traffic stop junction of the road, our investigation shows that both vehicles were on top speed.

“One person, a man, died while three others sustained various degrees of injuries,” the LASEMA official said.

Okunbor, however, said that two of the injured persons were attended to by the LASEMA’s paramedics before they were taken to the hospital.
