Nigeria: 60 killed in southern Nigeria road accident

BENIN, (Xinhua): At least 60 people lost their lives on Friday in a road accident which occurred on Benin-Ore road located in southern Nigeria, according to rescue officials and officers of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC).
A truck, luxury bus and fuel-laden tanker went aflame after a collision on the busy road, causing the multiple deaths, according to rescue officials.

One rescue official who declined to be mentioned said more than 60 people were burnt in the incident which also involved several vehicles on the road linking the two southern states of Edo and Ondo.

“The fire spread to a mechanic workshop in the area and more than eight more vehicles undergoing repairs were burnt,” the source said.

The Nigerian Federal Road Safety Commission in a short message also confirmed the accident and said so far 62 lives had been lost.

The commission said it was still expecting more details of the incident from its field officers before issuing a complete official statement.
