Three bodies were recovered after a Toyota Sienna bus plunged into the Omo River along the Ijebu-Ode-Ore expressway.
It was gathered that the accident occurred around J4 area in Ijebu East LGA of Ogun State.
The spokesman of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Florence Okpe, told newsmen that the lone crash involved a Toyota Sienna bus marked APP830HX.
