See how 15 Die In Fatal Accident On Owerri-Aba Expressway



About 15 people were said to have been lost
when an 18-seater bus and a tanker collided on
the Owerri-Aba expressway on Friday.
The bus, fully loaded with passengers, was
reportedly on its way to Aba from
Owerri when it
had the fatal accident after Obibiezena Junction,
very close to Shangrila Hotel in Owerri North
Local Government Area of Imo State.
Sources said the driver of the bus, which
belonged to Goodness and Mercy Motors
Limited, was on high speed while trying to
overtake the tanker driver at the Arrow Road
before the accident occurred, killing 15 people
on the spot.
The sources said while 15 passengers died
immediately, three survived with grievous injuries
and are currently in critical condition.
An eyewitness, Chigozie Iheanacho, said, “That
spot is a death trap and should be expanded.”
He blamed the bus driver for the tragedy, saying,
“It was the fault of the bus driver.”
Another eyewitness, Christian Madu, said
overspeeding was the cause of the accident.
An aggrieved Madu said, “It was a very fatal
accident. Drivers should always drive with
caution. Overspeeding and careless overtaking
are not good.”
When our correspondent visited the accident
scene, men and officers of the Nigeria Police
Force were on a rescue mission.
As of the time of filing in this report, the state
command of the Federal Road Safety Corps had
yet to speak on the accident.
