Four passengers died while several others sustained injuries in a road accident which occurred yesterday along the Aba-Owerri expressway.
The crash involved an L300 Mitsubishi bus carrying passengers from Owerri to Ulakwu and a Siana bus heading to Owerri from Aba, Abia state.
The L300 bus into which an official of the of Federal Road Safety Corpse (FRSC) allegedly entered following a face-off with the driver, drove off his lane and ran into an incoming Siana bus from Aba, resulting to the death of the four passengers.
The situation immediately attracted people especially from the mechanic village along the road who angrily attacked the officials of the FRSC believed to have caused the accident. The officials who were led by the Deputy Sector Commander Chris Anabor escaped being lunched by the angry mob as some of them fled while the rest were protected by available armed personnel from the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
When interviewed, the L300 bus driver, John Acho said that when his vehicle approached the point where the FRSC were doing their checks, one of the officials passed him but another insisted he should stop. He said  immediately the road safety man who stopped him opened his vehicle door, jumped into his seat and started dragging the steering wheel with him, making the bus to crash into the Siena bus.
Effort to contact the Public Relations officer of Road Safety Corps, Imo State Road Safety Corps failed as he did not answer calls placed on his mobile phone.
