Seven persons were burnt to death, yesterday, in an auto crash along Agbor-Abavo-Asaba highway.
An eyewitness, Comrade Austin Ozobo, who is the national president of Ijaw People Development Initiative, IPDI, told Vanguard that the accident occurred at about 3.40 pm, adding that there were four survivors, who were rushed to an undisclosed hospital.
He said: “A bus carrying about 11 passengers reportedly collided with a Peugeot J5 bus, which lost control.
“It is quite disturbing. I saw human beings burning alive and there was nothing anybody could do to stop the fire.
“Immediately it happened, there was an explosion and the bus caught fire. There was no fire service, even when the Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC officials, came later, nobody could do anything. People were just watching until they were burnt. There were only four survivors.”
