Six persons died while six others were injured in a crash opposite Redeemed Christian Church of God’s camp on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Tuesday.

The Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps spokesman in Ogun, Babatunde Akinbiyi, told reporters in Abeokuta that the accident involved an unidentified truck and a Mazda bus in which 15 persons were travelling.

He said the truck was making a U-turn when the bus, which was speeding excessively, rammed into it.

He added that the truck driver immediately fled from the scene.

Mr Akinbiyi said the deceased were deposited at morgues at Sagamu and in a hospital, both in Ogun, while the injured were taken to hospitals in the area.
