This is not the best of times for the Gospel-Tungba creator, Yinka Ayefele as he has lost one of his band boys in a lone fatal accident along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
According to reports, the truck conveying the band’s musical equipment ran into a ditch around 10pm Saturday night on the ever-busy expressway. The driver, while attempting to handle the impact, swerved off the road and crashed the truck, leading to the death of one of his band boys, while others in the truck also suffered various degrees of injuries.
Both the dead and the injured victims were moved to University College Hospital, UCH, Ibadan.
The ace music maestro revealed the news of the unfortunate incident on Sunday.
The band later tried to remove the truck with a crane.
In 1997, the ‘Bitter Experience’ singer was involved in terrible automobile accident which damaged his spinal cord and confined him to a wheelchair.
