The FRSC Unit Commander in Badagry, Mr Sulisu Galadunci, told reporters in Badagry that the accident involved a Nissan bus with registration XY 819 JJJ.

Galadunci, however, blamed the accident on over-speeding and brake failure, saying “the driver was conveying passengers from Seme to Badagry and was over-speeding.

“In the process, his brake failed and since he was speeding, he cannot control the vehicle anymore so he rammed into the Badagry Roundabout.

“All the passengers, made up of 13 males, six females and two children, including the driver were critically injured and they have been taken to the Badagry General hospital.”
