Wundu further noted that other victims of the accident sustained injuries and were rushed to a nearby hospital.
The owner of the trailer, Alhaji Umar Ibrahim, has demanded justice from relevant authorities for families of the deceased, as well as those that sustained injuries.
When contacted on phone, Mr Longsan, the FRSC spokesman in Jos, he said he was not in the office and therefore could not immediately comment on the incident.
