A devastating road accident occurred on Saturday around Obada Market in Ode-Omu town, Ayedaade Local Government Area of Osun State.

According to eyewitnesses, a private car with the registration number BDG 481 JD, traveling from Ibadan towards Osogbo, collided with a motorcycle carrying a mother, two children, and a toddler who were returning to Ogi village after attending a church vigil.

The accident resulted in the death of the mother, two children, and the motorcycle rider. The toddler, however, survived the accident.

In the aftermath of the accident, enraged residents of Ode-Omu descended on the occupants of the private car.

The driver of the vehicle managed to flee the scene, leaving two passengers inside the car.

An eyewitness simply identified as Monsurat, described the incident as “brutal and unfortunate,” adding that the driver might not have seen the motorcycle, leading to the tragic collision.

She said the mob dragged out the two remaining occupants from the car and set them ablaze.

However, police officers promptly intervened, extinguished the fire and rescued the victims who were subsequently taken to the hospital for treatment.
