A lone accident claimed the lives of two of the four occupants of a vehicle along MKO Abiola road, formerly Ring Road, Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, on Wednesday.
The accident, which occurred at about 2.00 a.m., involved a silver Nissan TEANA car with a foreign registration number DUBAI EXP 20719.

Nobody could ascertain the exact cause of the accident, but some people who claimed to have heard from some security guards around the area at the time of the incident claimed that it was a lone accident.
They further informed that the car was occupied by four youth who were coming from one of the clubs around Olusanya area also on the MKO Abiola Road.
The car rammed into one of the poles holding an advertising board at Mobil bus stop, just before Town Planning bus stop.
