2 nuns, 3 others burnt to death in Anambra auto crash

Five persons, including two nuns, were burnt to death in the early hours of Wednesday when two vehicles collided at Nawfia on the Enugu-Awka expressway in Anambra State.

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) sector commander in Anambra, Mr Adeoye Irelewuyi, said the collision was due to excessive speed.

He said, “The crash involved a Toyota Highlander with registration number BMR 570 BE and an unregistered Toyota Hiace bus.

“According to a witness, the bus driver conveying the nuns was speeding excessively, lost control and rammed into the Highlander from behind and both vehicles caught fire. “Five persons, two male adults and three female adults were involved in the crash.

While condoling with the families of the victims, Mr Irelewuyi warned motorists to avoid excessive speed and keep to recommend limits.
