Three policemen who participated in the September 19 governorship election in Edo state and were returning to Lagos have died in a fatal accident that occurred on the Benin-Ore Expressway in Ondo State.

The deceased were returning back to their base alongside some of their other colleagues when the vehicle they were traveling in got involved in the accident. While the others sustained different degrees of injury, the three police officers died on the spot and their bodies have been deposited in the morgue.

An officer who was also involved in the accident said;

“An accident claimed three policemen while on our way back from election duties in Edo State last Sunday, September 20, 2020. One of the victims was Corporal Oluwafemi Adeyanju, an indigene of Ondo State, where the accident occurred. The other two policemen were inspectors. I was also deployed in Edo State for the election and we had completed the national assignment and were coming home when the accident happened in Ore and three of my colleagues were killed.

“Apart from the three policemen, who died on the spot, others sustained varying degrees of injury. The family of Adeyanju has gone to claim his remains and buried him in his home town of Akure. We don’t know about the rest of the victims. When we were departing for Edo State, more than 80 buses parked outside the gate of the police command’s headquarters in Ikeja and conveyed us to Edo State, he added


  1. So pathetic, what could have caused the accident. Died while carrying out their duties even when they are in Edo nothing happened until when they are coming back. May their souls rest in peace.

  2. Again, we have lost another promise people who is serving Nigeria with all their strength. This is so sad, may Almighty God grant their families to bear the irreparable loss and forgive them their sins.

  3. This is painful. What might have caused this accident
    May the souls of the dead rest in Peace
    People should always remember to drive with caution so as to avoid preventable road crashes

  4. OMG! What is really going on in this country? What have we done to deserve all these from you God? May Almighty God have his mercy on us and forgive us our since. We can’t stand all these tribulation anymore. May their souls rest in peace.

  5. So many deaths this year. I just don’t know why. What is all this. Heathy unsick people traveling back after their national assignment
    Mhhhh!!! Very sympathetic story. Can this be due to bad roads that the government has refused to fix or reckless driving
    Whichever it might have been, may the souls of these police officers rest in peace and I pray God Almighty gives their families and loved ones the fortitude to bear this great loss

  6. Government transported them to Edo for election and abandoned them there and they then individually made arrangements to return home by themselves. If they were transported back the way they came the accident would have been avoided. The useless government we have is responsible for their deaths. May their souls rest in peace.

  7. Ooh my God…may gentle soul rest in peace and reward you with all your good did. Nigeria police will miss your departure and we Nigerian entirety. In addition I will plead on behalf of Nigerian…we want you to repent of all the bad behavior and your corruption people are not praying for you but instead they curse you. Please repent. RIP

  8. Rest in peace, but look into your hand work, because all country are not talking about the your mater in good condition …it may be other side of your behavior. Once again RIP

  9. There is something fishy. The cause and how the accident occurred wasn’t mention the their fellow officer. I perceive something fishy.
