He explained that the crash, which occurred at about 10.40 p.m. involved a truck and a bus both without registration numbers.
He also confirmed that a total of 10 persons were involved in the accident and seven were burnt beyond recognition.
Umar blamed the accident on route violation, adding that the truck and the bus had a head-on collision which resulted in a fire outbreak.

The FRSC commander, therefore, cautioned motorists to desist from driving against traffic as there was great danger in route violation.
