About 18 passengers had a narrow escape this evening, from a serious accident after a moving bus caught fire at Sunmoye junction, Ikire, Osun state.
According to an eyewitness, Mr Kehinde, he said
The bus is said to have journeyed all the way from Ondo heading for Lagos. However, in an attempt to screech the break of the bus by the driver as he approached the bumps along the road, what appeared as flames started from the driver’s seat and skyrocketed into a great fire which still leaves the bus burning. All passengers on board were quick to alight the bus, all safe but either lost in the fear of a slight close to death or the loss of their properties which they left in the bus in preference over their valued lives.
More details and Pictures soon.
