The Kaduna State Sector Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), on Tuesday, blamed the accident that claimed the lives of six Ekiti State medical doctors to over speeding.
Deputy Corps Commander, Salisu Galadunci, Kaduna state FRSC, Head of Operations, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna.
NAN reports that the accident occurred on Sunday at Doka, along Abuja –Kaduna road.
“Twelve medical doctors and a driver were in an 18-seater bus travelling to Sokoto for Nigeria Medical Association (NMA)’s annual conference and had a tyre bust due to over speeding.
“The vehicle overturned with the occupants and six of the doctors died along with the driver while six others survived with various degrees of injuries.
“Bodies of the victim were evacuated to St. Gerard Hospital for depositing and medical attention”.
Galadunci noted that over speeding was responsible for a larger percentage of accidents on Nigerian roads. The official advised drivers to desist from over speeding to save lives.
