All 18 of the bus’s occupants, according to an FRSC official, were male adults.
He cited “speed violation” as the cause of the collision, claiming that it caused the drivers of the cars to lose control.
The FRSC Corps Marshal, Dauda Biu, was reported by Kazeem as urging drivers and other road users to abstain from exceeding the posted speed limit on all routes.
According to Biu, obeying the posted speed limit will significantly minimize traffic accidents.
