The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has confirmed two persons dead by hit and run vehicles along Lagos/Ibadan Expressway.





A statement by Spokesman for the agency, Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, in Lagos on Saturday quoted NEMA South-West Zonal Coordinator, Alhaji Suleiman Yakubu, as saying that the victims may have been knocked down in the morning.

“A motorcyclist was found in front of Majun City Estate, while the other mangled body was found about three kilometers to Mowe from the Ibadan end of the expressway.



“We have contacted the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) for the evacuation of the bodies,” he said.
The coordinator called on those whose relations may be missing to contact the Sagamu Interchange Unit and the Mowe FRSC Unit for identification.

He advised motorcyclists to desist from using the expressway, saying that it was risky to do so.
