    The state governor visited the scene of the accident. He also visited victims of the fire in the hospital.

    “When I assessed the accident scene, I was made to understand the fire was caused by a brake failure and resultant collisions, which could have escalated but for the quick intervention of responders.

    “We have invited burn specialists from Lagos to treat victims with severe burns, and all victims whom I visited at the State Hospital, Ijaye and the Federal Medical Centre, Idi-Aba, will be taken off by the State Government.
