According to him, “we learnt that at about 7pm, yesterday, the bus which was conveying the young artists who were about nine in number including their driver, was taking them back home to Zaki Biam when it was flagged down at one of the security checkpoints on Katsina/Ala-Ikyowe road probably for clearance.

“Regrettably a trailer on top speed coming from far behind was also being flagged down by the security operatives but the driver of the truck apparently lost control of the vehicle and ran into the parked bus killing all the occupants on the spot.

“The laud bang attracted the attention of the villagers who trooped to the road to assist and rescue the victims but none of them survived the crash. Some were even crushed beyond recognition but the remains of five were still intact.

“When this happened those that were at the roadblock fled for fear of being lynched by the people. But the people mobilized and moved all the bodies to the hospital where they were deposited at the mortuary after which their relations were contacted.

“It is indeed sad because these were young upcoming movie artists who got into the movies to make a living and were indeed making waves in our area and their lives just came to an end just like that, it is sad,” he added.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Deputy Superintendent, DSP, Catherine Anene confirmed that nine persons were killed in the accident adding, “but the tanker driver is still at large.”
