The wife of a former Senate Leader, Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, Amaka, and six others have died in a road crash in Ondo State.
The accident which occurred on Thursday evening along the Ore/Okitipupa Expressway in Odigbo Local Government Area of the state left many other commuters injured.
An eyewitness told Channels Television that the accident occurred some metres away from a military checkpoint at Irele junction in Ore.
A truck, two cars, and a coaster bus which belongs to the Sports Department of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko (AAUA), were involved in the crash.
The truck was said to have lost control and swerved off its lane to crush the cars and the AAUA coaster bus, killing four persons in the bus and three occupants of the two cars.
In his reaction, President Muhammadu Buhari condoled with Senator Ndoma-Egba and members of his family on the death of his wife.
In a statement on Friday by his media adviser, Femi Adesina, the President said his thoughts and prayers were with the Ndoma-Egba family in their period of grief.
He prayed for divine comfort for the family and peaceful repose of the soul of Amaka and others who died in the accident.
