The Ogun Customs Public Relations Officer, Aliyu Maiwada, confirmed the incident.

His words:

“I can confirm there is an incident that happened and our officers were involved and it’s very unfortunate that life is involved. But we are yet to confirm the details of what happened.

“However, the preliminary information is that our men were conveying a ‘tokunbo’ vehicle suspected to have been smuggled into the country; in which an okada rider carrying some students crossed their way. It was an accident. I cannot inform you about how many lives that were lost at the moment.”
