A truck said to belong to Dangote mortar Manufacturing plant has plunged into Ososa river in Ogun Province, the Federal Route Security Corps (FRSC) said on Monday.

The Howo Sino truck, loaded with bags of cement, swerved into the river along the Sagamu-Republic of Benin highway when the driver lost command as a final result of excessive speeding.

The FRSC said it could not ascertain those involved in the accident, adding that a crane was “contacted by the Dangote mortar representative to ensure timely recovery of the crashed vehicle”.

Ogun FRSC spokesperson, Florence Okpe said one dead individual has been evacuated from the river.

As rescue operations commenced, Okpe said traffic has been temporarily diverted from inward Republic of Benin to outward Republic of Benin subdivision of the expressway at Ososa bridge to forestall a secondary crash.

“FRSC operatives from Ijebu Ode Unit Command are on the ground managing the traffic state of affairs effectively.

“Law MTD from Odogbolu and divers are on a thorough search.

“One dead body has been recovered from the river.

“Motorists are advised to drive cautiously when approaching the bridge and also cooperate with traffic managers for unloose flow of traffic,” Okpe said.
