No fewer than ten people were killed while many injured at Bode market on Sunday when a truck rammed into the market after it lost control.

The Police Public Relations Officers in the state, Adewale Osifeso, who confirmed the incident to Daily Trust on Sunday, however, said five people were killed in the accident.

Osifeso said many people were injured, saying he would update our correspondent after the investigation is completed.

Our correspondent, who visited the scene of the incident, reports that the gas tanker, after losing control from Idi-Arere, swerved into the market and overrun traders in the market.

Security operatives and men of the Oyo State Fire Service were at the scene of the accident to curtail further outbreaks of fire from the gas tanker.
