Oladele explained that a MAN Diesel Truck with registration number AAA-515 XM was heading to Lagos from Abeokuta when it lost control due to brake failure and rammed into a Mazda Spacewagon bus marked GGE-250 BB.

He said that five persons were involved in the accident that resulted in the death of one, while two were injured.

“The corpse of the victim has been deposited at the morgue of the Ifo General Hospital, while the survivors were taken to the General Hospital, Sango-Ota, for intensive treatment,’’ he said.

The sector commander said that normalcy had been restored to ease the free-flow of traffic in the area.

Trinidad and Tobago’s Prime Minister Keith Rowley has claimed victory in general elections, a preliminary result that appeared to secure him a second term as leader of the energy-rich Caribbean island country.

Rowley’s People’s National Movement (PNM) “has been called to service in the government … for a second time,” the daily Trinidad and Tobago Guardian quoted him as saying after the elections held on Monday.

The PNM took 22 seats against 19 seats for the opposition United National Congress (UNC), whose leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar announced that it will ask for recounts in marginal areas, according to the daily.

“The fights are not over until the recounts are done,” she said.

Rowley’s government has been praised for its handling of the novel coronavirus pandemic in the country which has reported 295 infections and eight deaths.

But the premier has been criticized over the years-long contraction of the economy, which is largely based on petroleum and petrochemicals, and over the arrival of large numbers of Venezuelan migrants into the country.

Rowley said his party had lost votes from senior citizens who could not go to vote because of the pandemic.

He, however, called on religious leaders in the country to intensify prayers for the end of the virus, saying only God could deliver the world from the pandemic.

“For those who are in charge of the donation of money, food items, etc, God said you must not steal anything from the money, food and all items donated for COVID-19 for yourself. If you do that, curses of the pandemic will be in the family of those who do this,” he added.

Abiara also asked Nigerians to go into agriculture, urging those with land, irrespective of the size, to cultivate them.
