3 Burnt Beyond Recognition, Another 2 Dead on Badagry-Seme Fire Road Accident

No fewer than 5 persons have reportedly died in a fatal motor accident along Badagry-Seme Expressway in Lagos State.

The accident happened around 9am on Thursday.

Confirming the incident, the Unit Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps at Badagry, Sulaiman Taiwo, said that the accident occurred at Akoro Village, on the Badagry-Seme Expressway.

According to Taiwo, the accident involved a Honda Pilot SUV with registration number LSR 772 HE and a motorcycle with an unidentifiable registration number.

Taiwo said the driver of the Honda Pilot must have been over-speeding and lost control before hitting the motorcycle laden with petrol.

“The driver of the jeep collided with the motorcycle resulting in an explosion.

“By the time we got to the scene, the raging fire had burnt three persons beyond recognition, while two others lost their lives during the rescue operation.
