UNN Students’ Bus Involved In An Accident On Their Way To Colleague’s Mother’s Burial


Tragedy was averted on Saturday, June 5 as a bus conveying no
fewer than 22 students of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka to a burial
was involved in an auto crash.


Scene of the accident

It
was learnt that the accident occurred at about 10am around the Okigwe
area of the Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway while the students were
travelling for the burial of one of their colleague’s mother at Mbaitolu
Ikeduru in Imo State.

One of the victims, simply identified as
Delight, a second-year student of Library and Information Studies who
spoke to Punch blamed the accident on the deplorable condition of the
highway.

She said the driver of the bus conveying them was about
overtaking another vehicle when he suddenly saw a dangerous pothole in
the middle of the road, and in his attempt to dodge it, the vehicle
veered off the highway and somersaulted.

While adding that after
the vehicle somersaulted many times, “we all found ourselves in the
median of the expressway, trapped in the vehicle with the roof upside
down.”

However, it took the combined efforts of other commuters
and sympathisers to squeeze the victims out of the badly damaged bus
which had the inscription of Christ Church Chapel Choir C4, UNN Campus.

Fortunately
no life was lost but all the passages in the bus were injured while the
critically injured were rushed to hospitals at Okigwe for medical
treatment by sympathisers.
