According to him, the crash occurred around 6.00a.m.
He said preliminary investigation revealed that the commercial bus, which was on top speed, rammed into the stationary truck.
“The commercial bus was driven by one Ibrahim and they were on their way to Lagos from Jalingo, Taraba State.
“The FRSC team rushed the injured victims to Chukwuemeka Odumegu Ojukwu Teaching Hospital, Amaku, while the dead, all male, have been evacuated to the same hospital mortuary,” he said.
Anigbo expressed the sympathies of Mr Andrew Kumapayi, the state’s Sector Commander of FRSC, to the family of the deceased and prayed for the quick recovery of the injured victims.
He however, advised motorists to ensure that they placed adequate caution signs whenever their vehicles broke down along the road. (NAN)
