July 15, 2013 – Fuel Tanker Accident In Abuja Killed Over 10: Kaduna Truck Crushed Bus Passengers To Death In Zuba

At least 10 people died in a tragic truck accident that happened in Zuba on Saturday.

According to eyewitnesses, the driver of a fuel tanker coming from Kaduna at night lost control after an apparent break failure at Zuba.

We learnt the truck crashed into a BRT bus and commercial motorcycles who were picking up passengers beside the road.

Many vehicles were involved; BRT bus popularly known as (El-Rufai), Toyota Sienna , 18-seater Passenger bus and a Toyota Carina. The tanker hit all the vehicles at the same time and many people died on the spot.

Those who sustained injuries were taken to undisclosed hospitals in Gwagwalada. As at the time of this report the wreckage of all vehicles that were involved were still trapped under the tanker. But the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has put the number of the dead at 6 while those who sustained injuries at 16.

Who else is safe in this country without rules and regulations especially for fuel tankers.

May the souls of the victims rest in peace.

  1. the tanker driver should be stopped at various entry points..most of them drunk wth liquor under their seats..road safety shld pull them over for routine checks and posting speed limits and vehile in full functioning capacity..most of their headlights are not brighter than a torch light and one headlight might be out.safety should be paramount..rip fellow compatriots

  2. Is only in Jesus we can c joy wen we enter d kingdom of God, bt dis world, is full of evil and sorrow everyday, Bokoharam nd road accidents is enemy of dis country dat kills faster. Brethren seek eternal lif b4 it 2 late
