Six Ekiti varsity students die in auto crash


No fewer than six students of Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti, are feared dead in an auto crash involving a car and a commercial bus on Monday.
The accident occurred around 7.30pm in front of the institution’s main gate.
An eyewitness account said that six persons died from the impact of an head-on collision of the two vehicles.
Another source told one of our correspondents that the students were in a Lexus saloon car and were coming from Ado Ekiti  town to the university when the accident occurred.
The identities of the students could not be ascertained as of the time of filing this report.
But the Ekiti Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Alberto Adeyemi, who confirmed the development, said his men had recorded five deaths.
An eyewitness said the driver of the car, suspected to be under the influence of alcohol with his friends, rammed into the mini bus conveying the students from the campus.
“They must have been heavily drunk and they drove carelessly and collided with the commercial bus. Six people died on the spot while one of them is on danger list.
“The Federal Road Safety Corps have taken the corpses to the morgue,” he said.
When contacted, the FRSC Ekiti Sector Commander, Maowada Ismaila, said he was waiting for a report from his men who were “still on a rescue mission.”
He said details would be made public after briefing by his men.

On this fateful day, I had decided to join the coaster bus ride home, for two reasons, it’s got better seats and arrangement than the popular yellow buses (LT and Paragon), it would also arrive faster at my destination, albeit its more expensive than the yellow buses. I sat down, I can’t say in peace though, you can hardly be on the street of Lagos and expect that tranquility of Beverly Hills, as commuters strolled into the bus indecisively. It took a while before the bus got filled and ready to go. A young lady, had been in the bus for as long as I had been, some few seats behind me, surrounded by male commuters, she was the only female within 3 rows. The journey started slowly, because at this time of the day in Lagos everything goes slowly. The journey started uneventful, besides the occasional ranting of passeng…
