Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has commiserated with the people of Iworoko Ekiti over Saturday’s accident in the town which led to the death of about 15 people including a Corps Member.

In a statement by his Press Secretary, Mr. Yinka Oyebode, the Governor who had earlier directed the Deputy Governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, to pay a condolence visit to the community on Sunday morning, said that he was saddened and devastated by the news of the fatal accident.

Noting that many lives have been lost due to the recklessness of many trailer drivers, he said government might be compelled to re-introduce some old laws and arrangements to deal with the menace.

Dr Fayemi urged the community leaders and families of the victims of the accident to remain calm even as “we collectively mourn the death of our beloved ones in the unfortunate incident.”

The Governor said: “This is a huge tragedy and a painful experience, not only for the families of the victims but for all of us.

“We share with the people of Iworoko and the families of the victims the pain and sorrow of the unfortunate development.

“Our prayer is that God will be with you during this painful period.

“Government will also look at areas of support with a view to ameliorating the pains”.
