Two persons were killed after a trailer rammed into a bus at Mandaregi village on the Abuja-Lokoja highway.
A witness, Shuaibu Aliyu, said the accident happened around 5pm on Saturday when the driver of a DAF trailer loaded with tiles coming from the Lokoja axis veered off his lane and crashed into a bus, killing two people on the spot.
Our correspondent, who arrived at the scene shortly after the accident, observed men of the FRSC evacuating the corpses into their patrol van, while other officials were busy controlling traffic.
