Tragedy struck in Iworoko Ekiti, yesterday night as a trailer loaded with rice ran into the market located at the centre of the town.

Many people were feared dead and their remains have been taken to mortuary while few who were injured are receiving treatment at a hospital.

Radio Nigeria Progress FM reporters, who were at the scene of the accident, gathered  that the trailer with full load of customized bags of rice with the picture, name and logo of a senatorial candidate in Ondo State cleared two vehicles before it ran into some shops due to alleged brake failure.

Sympathizers, fire fighters, officers of the Federal Road Safety Corps and the Police engaged in the rescue operations which lasted till midnight.
