The accident was said to have occurred when the driver who was reportedly driving against traffic, collided with the motorcycle conveying Olatona, and another passenger along the Ikirun-Osogbo road area of the state.

Punch Metro gathered on Wednesday from a student of the polytechnic, who was privy to the incident but pleaded anonymity, that the driver was driving in the wrong direction when he allegedly hit the motorcycle conveying Olatona and one other yet-to-be-identified person.

The severe impact of the collision was said to have led to the National Diploma 2 student’s death.

Olatona, who was the Financial Secretary of the Department of Mass Communication, was preparing for his mandatory one-year Industrial Training programme.

The source said, “A student of Iree was killed by a trailer driver on Monday night. The student was on a motorcycle with one other person when the driver, who was driving against traffic, collided with them.
