The newly sworn-in Vice Chairman of Irepo Local Council Development Area, in Oyo State, Adeyemo Ojelade, and one of his political associates, Adediwura, have been reported dead.

The unfortunate incident reportedly happened on Monday, May 14th, few hours after his swearing in.

According to reports, the politicians were returning from Ibadan, the state capital, where they had attended the swearing-in ceremony of the newly elected chairmen of the 33 Local Government Areas, LGAs and 35 Local Council Development Areas of the state. The accident occurred at Adefila Village, along Ogbomoso – Igbeti Road in the Oke-Ogun area of the state.

The accident reportedly occurred after one of the tyres of the Honda car in which the politicians were traveling in, burst while in motion, causing the car to summersault several times in the process.

Reports say while the families of the deceased are putting in place their burial arrangments, the remains of the deceased have since been deposited in the morgue.
