Mr Ahmed Umar, the FRSC Sector Commander in Ogun, stated this in a statement issued in Abeokuta.
Umar advised motorists to make use of other routes to avoid unnecessary delays.
“The rescue operation is still on and the people involved are yet to be confirmed because a bus is also involved.
“The crash scene was confined to avoid a secondary crash as traffic has been diverted.
” Men of Fire Service have arrived at the scene and effort is being made to put out the fire. Traffic has been temporarily diverted at Lufuwape U-turn to ease the traffic situation,” he said.
