The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Kogi says four persons died while six persons sustained injuries on Tuesday in an accident on Kabba-Lokoja-Abuja Road.
Kogi Sector Commander Stephen Dawulung confirmed the incident in Lokoja on Wednesday, explaining that one person did not sustain injury.
Mr Dawulung said that the accident involved a bus and that it occurred at 3:10 p.m. on Tuesday, at Km 2, Line 3, Obajana, Kogi on Kabba-Lokoja-Abuja road.
He said that the injured persons were rescued by the corps’ personnel and were quickly rushed to a hospital in Obajana for treatment while the four bodies were deposited in the hospital’s morgue.
He said that the accident was caused by the speed that could not be controlled when one of the tyres deflated, resulting in a summersault. “If the driver wasn’t on high speed, the accident might not have occurred or it could have been mild.
