No fewer than 10 people including a woman and her two kids, were feared dead on Tuesday when an 18 seater bus belonging to Ezza South Local Government Area with registration number NKE 28LG, rammed into a crane truck, belonging to a Chinese company, with registration number DKA 17YF, at Hausa quarters junction, along Abakaliki-Afikpo road, in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital.

An eye witness, Mr. Favour John while speaking on the incident said, “The truck was trying to turn all the way from Spera in deo junction but the bus driver, instead of stopping like others who saw it decided to drive past but unfortunately he rammed into it. It is due to over-speeding that he rammed into the turning truck.” Officers of the Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, it was gathered, had last week warned the driver of the bus against over-speeding. A pregnant woman who was pulled out of the manged bus, was still breathing and was immediately rushed to the Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki for medical attention.
