13 passengers attempting to beat sit-at-home burnt to death

No fewer than 13 persons were burnt to death on Sunday night in an accident involving a Toyota bus and a trailer at 4-Corners Junction, near Enugu metropolis, Enugu State.


The victims were burnt beyond recognition as the bus conveying them from Imo to Adamawa State, had a head-on collision with a trailer and exploded immediately.


The victims were said to be attempting to beat the Monday’s sit-at-home order in solidarity with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu over continued detention by the Federal Government when the bus collided with the trailer.


The accident, said to have occurred at about 10.30pm close to army checkpoint at 4-Corners, attracted the soldiers, who made futile effort to rescue the victims.


It was gathered that soldiers alerted the officials of Road Safety and Fire Service, but their quick response could not save the victims who were burnt beyond recognition.
