According to online reports, a bus filled with passengers is said to have fallen into this river along Lagos-Ore expressway . FRSC officials and road users gathered at the scene to see what they could salvage from the crash.

An unspecified number of passengers were feared dead on Thursday when an 18-seater commercial bus plunged into the Arun River at Ogere, near Ijebu Ode in Ogun.

The Public Information Officer of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, confirmed the incident.

“A report has just reached NEMA that an 18-seater bus plunged into Arun River at Ogbere, after Ijebu Ode in Ogun.
