One of the deceased victims, DAILY POST reports, was identified as John Aisoni, a commercial motorcyclist in the Ogori Magongo area of Kogi State, while the other is working in a microfinance bank in the same Local Government.

Eyewitness accounts traced the cause of the incident to overspeeding.

The Kogi State Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, (FRSC) Oyedeji Samuel Sunday confirmed the incident to DAILY POST on Friday afternoon.

He attributed the accident to wrong overtaking. “The accident was between a commercial motorcyclist and a Toyota Venza car. There was wrong overtaking which led to this ghastly motor accident. Two people have been confirmed dead and have since been deposited in a morgue in nearby Edo State while the other person is receiving treatment at Ogori General Hospital”.

The Sector Commander, however, advised motorists to avoid overspeeding and ensure they abide by all the rules guiding driving.
