A TANKER laden with diesel on Friday allegedly killed seven passengers of a commercial bus heading to Douglas Road, Owerri, Imo State.


An eye witness said the accident which occurred at the edge of the Otamiri River at about 6 pm saw the tanker ram into the small commercial bus with the passengers on board.


The source said the tanker driver was overwhelmed by the noise of a siren blaring van belonging to the Nigeria Correctional Centre, Owerri, and veered off the road before ramming into the mini bus.

Ugoh who was there to assess the level of damage, alleged that the driver of the van conveying inmates back to the centre was driving recklessly, coupled with the blaring of siren and guns trotting by the men escorting the van.


He said the reckless “driving and manoeuvring might have scared the tanker driver to lose control and ram into the commercial bus.”
