Owoade said the accident occured on Oko Olowo/Oloru road at Iyemoja on the outskirts of Ilorin, the state capital, adding that the crash was as a result of speed violation.

"The Olooru Unit Command of the FRSC received a call at around 3:50pm today about a crash which occurred at Iyemoja on Oko Olowo-Olooru road axis.

"The crash was a lone fatal one involving a black commercial Toyota Hiace bus with vehicle registration number LND 742XK. "18 persons were involved and unfortunately 10 of them lost their lives and eight other person's injured.

"The cause of the crash was as a result of speed violation," he said.

He said the obstruction caused by the crash had been cleared with the assistance of the Nigeria Police Force.

Owoade warned motorists against violating road safety guidelines, adding that the resultant effect of over speeding was road traffic crash.

He advised road users especially travellers to take caution and exercise patience while on the road.

"Slow and steady wins the race. The prayer of every traveller is to reach their destination, it does not matter how long it takes.

"Speed violation, fatigue driving and disrespect for traffic rules can cut such expectations short.

"May we not die untimely by our own hands," the sector commander said.
