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 survivors were taken to Victory Hospital, Ogere, for medical attention,” he said.

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