Ajibade explained that the accident happened at about 9.15 a.m when the commercial bus marked APP 427 YA lost control and hit the victims.

He said that the bus was coming from Sango-Ota heading towards Toll-gate when it lost control and rammed into two persons on a motorcycle and two pedestrians that wanted to cross.

“The four victims sustained various degrees of injuries and they were taken to State Hospital, Ota for treatment,”he said.
