Yesterday Friday will probably go down in history as the most horrific auto crash in Nigeria as 16 people were burnt to death along the now dreaded death trap.
The Kogi State Governor’s convoy ran into an accident scene between Gegu and Abaji on the Lokoja-Abuja Expressway Friday. According to the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Yahaya Bello on New Media, Petra Akinti Onyegbule, the accident involved an SUV and a commercial bus which was traveling from Lagos to Kano. Both vehicles were said to have been engulfed in flames burning 16 passengers to death. 3 of the dead passengers were in the SUV while 13 were occupants of the bus.
A lone survivor from the bus has been taken to an undisclosed hospital for treatment. May the souls of the victims rest in peace. AUTOXPAT is wishing the survivor a speedy recovery as well as calling on motorists to maintain speed limits and be extremely cautious on the roads,life has no duplicate.
