It's sad and unfortunate day that a fatal road accident on Thursday has claimed the lives of two yet to be identified young men in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, VOICE AIR MEDIA reports.

The two men, believed to be traders, were riding on a motorcycle and conveying a bag of corn to an unknown destination.

They were killed in the early hours of the day when residents were about celebrating Eid-El Moulud day.

The young men were reportedly crushed to death by a fully loaded tanker trailer.

The accident occurred at Ureje area of Ado Ekiti, along the ever-busy Ado Ekiti- Ikare, Ondo State highway, along the Federal Polytechnic road, Ado Ekiti road.

Eyewitnesses alleged that the two men, while riding on the motorcycle with the corn bag, mistakenly hooked on the edge of the trailer while on motion, and the bike swerved under the vehicle, killing them instantly.
