According to Okpe, the collision, which took place at 9:23 p.m., was attributed to excessive speeding, causing the driver of the bus to lose control.

The FRSC has urged all road users to prioritize safety measures and exercise responsible driving practices, especially during this period of heightened traffic activity.
