The Kogi State Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corp, (FRSC) Solomon Agure confirmed the incident to newsmen on Thursday evening.

” It was a night journey. In the early morning of today, between 6:30am to 7am, there was a tanker that was parked by the road side and the vehicle lost control and hit the tanker and later went into flame” he said.

Agure advised motorist to avoid night journeys saying, “God who created us knows why he created day and night. The vehicle is coming from Lagos in the night. Because for you to be around Jamata bridge, Akpayan road at that early hours means you drove through out the night. Drivers should avoid stressing themselves by driving at night to avoid accidents in our roads”. He added
