Two persons have been confirmed dead in a motor accident which occurred at about 4 pm on Monday at Felele in Lokoja.

According to an eye-witnessed account, the articulated vehicle was on its way to one of the northern state when the incident occurred.

The sources further added that on getting to Felele along Lokoja- Abuja road as the vehicle was descending, the brake of the vehicle failed as it crashed into a heavy barricade at the centre of the road and then somersaulted.
The accident led to the burning of the vehicle as the two people, the driver and the truck boy were burnt beyond recognition.
Meanwhile, members of the Federal Road Safety Corps were on hand to control the traffic and also evacuate the cement bags that littered the road to avoid another accident.
The Firefighters were not left out as they put off the fire to also avoid further explosion since the scene of the accident is very close to some Petrol stations.
