5 Die Early Hours Of This Morning As Bus Plunges Into River

Five persons lost their lives early this morning on the Onitsha-Enugu express way, as a commuter bus heading towards Enugu plunged into Oji River, near Anambra.

The Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Anambra Command, Sunday Ajayi, who confirmed the accident told NAN, that the incident occurred about 1:25 a.m. on Thursday.

Ajayi said there were 15 passengers in the vehicle, out of which 10 were rescued and taken to hospital, while five were killed in the incident. He said the timely rescue operations led by the personnel of the FRSC minimised the number of casualties. The commander said it was a ‘lone accident’ and blamed it on drowsiness of the driver, poor visibility and other dangers associated with night driving.

He urged people who wished to travel to do so during the day time, and set out on time for journey that may stretch into the night.

  6. God help their souls. All these early morning waka. For this harmattan wey sleep de people eyes well. Driver still be human, but no they want to make all the money this season like it will go out of the yearly trend. They end up killing people. See this one now, I am sure all the passengers had all dozed and the driver followed suit. He might not even realise he was heading for th river till he actually hit it. Too sad.
