Five yet-to-identified traders, yesterday, lost their lives in a
ghastly motor accident near Irasa Village, along Ado-Iworoko Ekiti Road.

Nine others, including some students of the Ekiti State University,
Ado-Ekiti, were also critically injured in the auto-crash close to the
university’s campus, at about 4:15am on Thursday.

The traders, mostly women, were on their way to Ado-Ekiti in a Nissan
saloon car marked Osun AA 529 FTD when a Mazda car with the
registration number Lagos KJA 608 CD, said to be occupied by eight
students, rammed into them.

The students, according to a source, were returning from a dinner
party organised by some of the final-year students of the institution
when their car collided head-on with the vehicle carrying the traders
who were coming from Ora-Ekiti. While five women in the commercial
vehicle died on the spot, the driver and eight othrs from the other
vehicle are critically injured and receiving treatment at the emergency
unit of the state university’s teaching hospital.

Safe for the timely intervention of the villagers and some policemen
attached to the Iworoko Police Division, the students would have been
trapped in their car. The villagers had to use cutlasses and axes to cut
through and get the students out.

The public relations officer of the university’s Student Union
Government, Priscilla Afolabi, who confirmed the accident, said “They
are our colleagues coming from a dinner. None of the eight (five females
and three males) died. They were coming from a popular hotel close to
the university, the venue of the dinner, when the incident happened.”

The Ekiti State Command Police Public Relations Officer, Victor
Babayemi who also confirmed the incident said the five persons who lost
their lives in the accident were women traders who were coming from
Ora-Ekiti to Ado-Ekiti.

Babayemi also disclosed that their bodies had been deposited at the
state morgue while nine others who are students of the Ekiti State
University and the driver of the commercial vehicle were receiving
treatment at the state’s teaching hospital.
