No fewer than 5 persons lost their lives on the Onitsha-Enugu express way, as a commuter bus heading towards Enugu plunged into Oji River, near Anambra on Thursday morning. Mr Sunday Ajayi, the Anambra Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, while confirming the accident, said the accident occurred at about 1:25 am on Thursday, noting that there were 15 passengers on board the vehicle, out of which 10 were rescued and taken to hospital, while five were killed in the incident.

He blamed the accident on drowsiness of the driver, poor visibility and other dangers associated with night driving. He, however, urged people who wished to travel to do so during the day time, and set out on time for any journey that may stretch into the night.
