“Since the crash obstructed the road, the driver of the Micra car ran into it but was able to control his vehicle with little damage to the car,” said Mr Umar.

He noted that seven people were involved in the crash: one woman and six men. Mr Umar also mentioned that the remains of the deceased had been deposited at the FOS Morgue, Ipara.

“Traffic has been diverted and FRSC personnel are still on the ground trying to manage the situation and ensure that the obstruction is moved from the road,” he said.

The FRSC commander warned against “dangers of excessive speed,” especially when visibility is poor and advised motorists to drive cautiously, avoid speeding and obey traffic rules and regulations.
