NO FEWER than five persons died and three others injured in an auto-crash that occurred in Kogi State, yesterday.

  The auto crash occurred at Ogbagbo Junction along Ejule-Ochadamu Road around 12p.m. when a Nissan car collided with a Mazda car.

Our personnel, who rushed to the scene after a distress call, rescued the four injured and rushed them to Enemona Hospital, Ejule in Ofu Local Government Area of Kogi, where the fifth person died while receiving medical treatment.
