Tragic Road Accident Claims Lives of Three Monarchs in Oyo State

Three traditional rulers from Oriire Local Government Area of Oyo State lost their lives in a fatal road accident on Friday night, plunging the state into mourning. The monarchs, including the OLODOGBO of Odogbo, the Onibowula of Bowula, and the Alayetoro of Ayetoro, were en route to a social function in a nearby community when their vehicle collided head-on with a commercial Scania Truck along the Ogbomoso-Oyo Expressway. The accident, which occurred at Aje Iye in Oriire Local Government Area, resulted in two monarchs succumbing on the spot, while the third passed away a few hours later at the Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital (LAUTECH).

According to Joshua Adekanye, the Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in Oyo State, the collision involved a Benz E230 with registration number OLODOGBO and a commercial Scania Truck with registration number 301 XF. Three other passengers survived the crash and are currently undergoing treatment at LAUTECH Teaching Hospital. The remains of the deceased monarchs have been deposited at the hospital’s morgue.
