An eyewitness, Bawasa Ibrahim told Daily Trust that two tricycle riders popularly called Keke-NAPEP were equally burnt in the accident.
”The tanker and the 18-seater bus were trying to overtake each other. But unfortunately, the tanker lost balance and it fell on the bus.
“We have been complaining to the government to fix this road. Now you can see how many lives that have been lost. No fewer than 25 burnt bodies can be seen here”, Ibrahim added.
Another eyewitness, Haruna Sadiq who sympathized with families of those who lost their lives said they called on the fire authority for more than 20 minutes but they claimed there was no fuel in their vehicle.
”I am really disappointed with our firemen. We have been calling them that people are dying here, but all we could hear is that they don’t have fuel. What a shame,” he said.
Other witnesses said while some residents scampered for safety, others were seen with galoons trying to scoop fuel.
Men of the fire service and those of the Federal Road Safety Corps arrived later at the scene to salvage the situation.
