5 Dead As Bus Plunges Into Oji River In Anambra State


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

Sunday Ajayi, Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Anambra Command, 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 rescue at Oji River is still going on, we have been able to rescue 10 people alive and taken them to hospital, five were confirmed dead and the bus has been recovered,” he said.

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.
