“I learnt the vehicle was coming from the North inbound Lagos and loaded with yam.

“The casualty was much because some of the passengers who are also likely owners of the yam were seating on the yam in the open space at the back.

“The truck lost control due to excessive speed and poor visibility; fell by its side with the yam and the vehicle fell on them,” Akinbiyi said.

He, however, urged motorists to be careful with their vehicles by avoiding over speeding and night travel if possible. The spokesman further stated that such a journey should be avoided especially, this harmattan season with poor visibility everywhere.
