The spokesman of the Federal Road Safety Commission, Mr. Bisi Kazeem, confirmed the incident in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.

Kazeem said that 50 others, including a child, were injured and had been taken to the hospital for treatment.

He said a white Mercedes Benz Chisco Paradiso luxurious bus conveying 82 passengers was involved in the lone accident.

“The crash occurred at about 4a.m. at the Sharp Corner Checkpoint on the Okene end of the road. It was caused by brake failure,” Kazeem informed.

“An FRSC rescue team arrived at the scene 20 minutes later and took the injured and corpses to the General Hospital in Okene (Kogi),” he added.

Kazeem reiterated the advice to motorists to regularly check their vehicles and ensure they are road worthy before putting them on the roads.
