20 Burnt To Death Today In Imo Auto Accident

No fewer than 20 persons were Friday burnt to death when a tanker laden with petrol fell and exploded on the Njaba bridge close to Owerri, the Imo State capital.

According to an eyewitness account the tanker that was headed to Owerri, suddenly lost control while climbing the hill on the Njaba Bridge and started rolling back before it capsized and burst into flames, which engulfed on an eighteen seater bus that was following behind and burnt the whole occupants to death.

However when contacted, the Imo State Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Joseph Aremu, confirmed the accident but said that the casualty figure was not yet ascertained.

He said that his men were on ground at the scene of the accident to control traffic and render assistance to surviving victims.
