No fewer than ten persons, including a presenter of the Special Marshal radio programme for the Federal Road Safety Commission in Osun State, Chief S.O. Adewale,  were killed  after a petrol tanker rammed into a market in Owena, near Akure, the Ondo State capital, on Wednesday.

Several persons were seriously injured and hospitalised.

This is coming barely one week after a tanker exploded in Onitsha, Anambra state, killing at least 69 persons.

Residents of the area said the tanker was coming from the Ilesa end of the Akure/Ilesa Road.

Most victims of the incident were said to be traders, artisans and drivers who parked on the road side.

The victims were taken to a hospital in Akure, where some of them were confirmed dead.

It was gathered that Adewale, who died on the spot, was making a purchase at Owena market when a fuel truck lost control and rammed into his car.

His wife and son were injured. They were rushed to the emergency unit of the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital in Ile-Ife.

However, the Sector Commander of the FRSC in Osun State,  Mohammed Husaini, said the accident involved three vehicles but only Adewale  died
