“We have contacted the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) for the evacuation of the bodies,” he said.

The coordinator called on those whose relations may be missing to contact the Sagamu Interchange Unit and the Mowe FRSC Unit for identification.

He advised motorcyclists to desist from using the expressway, saying that it was risky to do so.
