2 Die in accident on Shagamu-Ore Expressway on Wednesday.

A 14-seater commercial bus with number plate XB 185 EHR somersaulted on the ever busy Shagamu-Ore Expressway on Wednesday killing two and injuring many passengers at Odogbolu junction .
A survivor of the accident, who identified herself simply as Favour, accused the driver of over speeding.
The bus was heading towards the road median after it lost one of its tyres until one of the passengers sitting in the front took over the steering from the driver, adding that this made the bus to somersault.
Favour, who sustained minor injury on her face, said the bus took off from Benin early in the morning for Lagos.
She recalled that the driver was warned several times by passengers to reduce his speed but he was adamant.
