Two persons have been confirmed dead in a lone accident while another was injured in a separate accident that occurred along the Ondo-Ore Road in Ondo State.
The two dead victims were said to be personnel of the Ondo State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
They were said to be returning from the burial ceremony of a mother of one of their colleagues in Okitipupa.
