Read what our Reporters sent to us below:-
A terrible accident happened (Sunday 30 October 2016) around 4:00pm involving a fourteen seater bus and a car, the bus had a burst tyre while on motion, and ran into the car.
The two passengers in the car lost there life on the spot, while five other people from the bus was burnt beyond recognition. With the help of some road safety officers, police officers and some passers-by, we were able to carry those alive to OAU teaching hospital and seven days adventist both in ife, two others life’s were lost when we got to hospitals, doctors and nurses are attending to others.
If the emergency system in this country was fast and reliable, we would have been able to save more souls. It took us more than an hour before we could get to the nearest hospital, souls are perishing on our roads on daily basis due to bad roads and poor health system, yet one selfish politician will steal trillions of naira meant for this purposes.
May the Lord have mercy on us all. I think people should also be enlightened on the needs to provide assistance to victims involved in accident, I didn’t see the spirit of a good Nigerian on the road today as people were not ready to help us carry the injured victims, either military men on uniform refused to render help.
