A passenger suspected to be in his 60s has died inside a commercial bus on the Ogbomoso-Ilorin Expressway in Kwara State.

Narrating the incident, another passenger in the bus, Mrs Abeni Okin, said, “The unfortunate incident happened on April 20, 2024. It began when the bus encountered mechanical issues, forcing the driver to stop near Ote and leave the passengers behind to seek assistance.

“Amid the ordeal of the stalled journey, the elderly passenger began to experience seizures and was struggling to breath. Despite the desperate need for aid, the remote location of the incident posed a significant challenge in accessing timely assistance.

“With no immediate medical attention available, the man’s condition deteriorated rapidly, and tragically, he passed away before help could arrive.”

The state’s Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Stephen Dawulung, who confirmed the incident during a telephone chat with our correspondent on Wednesday, said, “We are aware of the incident because our attention was drawn to it. But since it relates to health issues; it is not in our jurisdiction. We only handle the issue of crashes.”
