4 burnt to death, 6 hurt in Lagos-Ibadan auto crash
While Nigeria is still mourning the death of those who lost their lives in the Kaduna Easter bombing, no few fewer than three adults and a child were burnt to death on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Wednesday after a bus lost control and burst into flames.
The incident, an eyewitnesses said occurred when the two front tyres of the Mazda with the registration number, XT 935 KSF burst and the driver lost control and hit a culvert between the AP filling station and a company, Eldorado.
According to the Unit Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Sagamu, Mr. Lasisi Ogundele, who led a team to the scene of the accident, 15 passengers were in the bus when the incident occurred.
His words: “Six of the passengers sustained injuries while four of them, including a baby were burnt beyond recognition
“They were later taken to the Federal Medical Centre and a hospital in Gbagada for comprehensive treatment.
“The bodies of those who died were deposited at the morgue of the Isolo General Hospital, Lagos. The families of the deceased have been here and we have directed them to the mortuary. But it might be a problem to identify the bodies because of their state.”
It was gathered that the driver of the bus fled immediately the accident occurred.
