An unspecified number of passengers were feared dead on Thursday when an 18-seater commercial bus plunged into the Arun River at Ogere, near Ijebu Ode in Ogun.

The Public Information Officer of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, confirmed the incident.
 He said in Lagos that rescue operation had begun.

“A report has just reached NEMA that an 18-seater bus plunged into Arun River at Ogbere, after Ijebu Ode in Ogun.

“NEMA, in strong partnership with the Ogun State Government, Ijebu East Local Government Council, the Federal Road Safety Commission and the police have mobilised local volunteers and divers to begin recovery of the victims,’’ Farinloye said.

He noted, however, that only two bodies had been recovered from the scene.

Also in 2012, a 32-seater bus similarly, plunged into the river, killing 22 people heading for a wedding.

Drivers do not drink & drive, they won't hear. Pls drive carefully, they still won't hear. The worst are those ones that'll be playing very loud music while driving with the motion of the beats. You see ur life now? I wish u died alone without ending ppl's lives abruptly with ur miserable one.

People should be prayerful and watchful, the ritualists are out for their yearly sacrifice.

What is our government doing to ensure that things like this does not reoccur. If their were strong  iron bars to protect that bridge. This incident would not have happened. May God continue to watch over us.... Rip to the dead.
