Seven including school children killed in fatal accident along Calabar-Itu Highway

The Ntak Inyang area is currently under repair by the state government after it was cut off by a landslide. The Niger Pet Construction firm handling the remedial work had closed one side of the road to traffic forcing all vehicles to ply just one lane of the highway.

According to information at the scene of the accident, some bystanders said the Keke driver and the passengers including school children died on the spot. 

The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in the state said it was gathering facts about the accident.

The state Sector Commander, Oga Ochi, who confirmed the number of casualty from the incident, added that its officers were immediately dispatched to the scene after receiving information about the crash.

The FRSC sector commander who said the accident occurred because the truck was on excessive speed when it rammed into the tricycles added that investigation into the incident was still ongoing.
