Six die in road crash in central Nigeria

MINNA, Nigeria (The Informant247) – At least 6 people were killed and scores injured when two commercial busses carrying 17 passengers collided along a highway in central Nigeria, officials said on Thursday.

The state commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Kumar Tsukwam, said five others involved in the accident that occurred on the Abuja – Kaduna road of Tafa  Local Government Area of Niger around 5:50 pm on Wednesday were unhurt.

“The victims and the corpses were taken to Sabon Wuse General Hospital and the vehicles were handed over to police division in Tafa LGA,” Tsukwam said, blaming the accident on speeding, diversion and loss of control.

Roads in Africa’s most populous country are among the deadliest in the world because of potholes, poorly maintained vehicles and dangerous driving.
