She said the accident happened very close to the Nigeria Air Force Base.

According to her, the accident, which happened around 1.55 p.m., involved eight male adults and two female adults who were all in the bus on transit.

“Four male adults and two female adults were injured, while the remaining four male adults escaped unhurt.
