Okpe said officers of the corps had evacuated the bodies.

She said the accident was caused by wrongful overtaking on the path of the bus driver.

She said: “The fatal crash occurred at about 1720 hrs on Xmas day, involving 15 persons, which comprised 12 male adults and three female adults. One person was injured and two persons were recorded death (two male adults).

“Two vehicles were involved a Toyota bus with registration TSE266XA, and a Mazda bus marked FKJ215XX.

“The suspected causes of the crash were wrongful overtaking and speeding. The injured victim was taken to Idera Hospital for medical attention and the corpses were deposited at the same hospital’s morgue.”
