The presidents of three student unions in Ondo State (South-West Nigeria) have been reported dead in an autocrash on Owo-Akure Road.
They are the presidents of the student unions of the Federal University of Technology, Akure (Dapo Awopegba); Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo (Abiodun Akintola); and Ondo State School of Midwifery.
They died in a lone accident at Emure Ile junction on the expressway on Friday night around 8p.m, according to the spokesman for the state police command, Aremu Adeniran.
He said it was due to over-speeding.
They were returning to their institutions from Abuja, where they had gone to witness the presentation of an award to the state governor, Olusegun Mimiko, and some other eminent Nigerians by the National Association of Nigerian Students.
They were traveling in a bus donated to the Joint Campus Committee by the state government recently.
Their corpses have been deposited in a morgue.
Others who sustained injuries are receiving treatment at the Federal Medical centre, Owo.
