At least four policemen died in a lone accident which occurred around Oba Ile /Akure Airport road in the Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State.
Apart from those who lost their lives in the accident, three other policemen who were seriously injured during the fatal accident were rushed to the hospital.
It was gathered that the accident was as a result of over speeding while the driver of the vehicle lost control, somersaulted and crossed to the other side of the road.
An eye witness said the Hilux van somersaulted several times before hitting a pavement while some of the policemen in the vehicle were flung out of the car.
It could not be confirmed if the victims were returning to their base after the last Saturday governorship election in the state, as some of their personal effects were still in the vehicle.
The Ondo Police spokesman, ASP Tee-Leo Ikoro, who confirmed the accident said he is yet to be fully briefed.
A spokesperson for the Onde Sector Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Omotola Ogungbawo, could not be reached for comments.
