According to our source, the accident involved a silver Toyota RAV 4 with the registration number LND 13 GS, a silver Toyota Camry with the registration number GGE 369 GJ, and a Mazda bus with an unspecified number.
A commercial bus that had allegedly overtaken a truck had reportedly collided with a parked defective Toyota Rav 4 in the middle of the lane.
According to reports, the bus lost power and somersaulted several times before bursting into flames. Babatunde Akinbiyi, a spokesman for the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), reported the accident on Friday morning.
According to Akinbiyi, 14 passengers, including three children, died as a result of the “unfortunate ghastly auto crash.” “There were 17 passengers on the bus when it crashed, three of whom were seriously injured and 14 of whom were burned beyond recognition, including three children,” he said. TRACE agents and other security agencies, he said, rushed two patients to the Lagos State Accident and Emergency Centre and one to the General Hospital in Gbagada, Lagos.
Meanwhile, TRACE has expressed its condolences to the families of the deceased victims, urging drivers to “avoid speeding, wrongful overtaking, and an overbearing behaviour that puts other road users in danger.”
PDP faces a crisis as 51 ex-councillors join the APC in Gombe.
The People Democratic Party (PDP) in Gombe State is in disarray after fifty-one former councillors from the state’s different Local Government Areas defected to the governing All Progressive Congress (APC) (APC).
The Councillors who switched from the PDP to the APC on Thursday said their decision was based on the Governor of the State, Mohammed Yahaya’s, outstanding results.
“We dumped PDP when we compared the accomplishments of APC in two years,” said Joseph Kwati, the group’s spokesperson and former Secretary of the Gombe Councillors’ Forum.
“We made the decision; no one approached us or asked us to join in moving the state forward; we were persuaded and wanted to join in moving the state forward.”
After a short ceremony at the Gombe State APC Secretariat, the councillors, who were drawn from the state’s 11 local government areas, were later released with APC membership cards.
“Our new members were convinced by Governor Inuwa’s achievements and agreed to join us,” Ado Gabani, the state APC Vice Chairman, said in welcoming the new party members.
“I should mention that they’ve all been given membership cards.”
Sudan’s Attorney General resigns after judges are fired by the government.
Sudanese news outlets announced that the country’s Attorney-General, Tag El-Sir El-Hibir, had submitted his resignation to the transitional Sovereignty Council due to internal judicial divisions.
El-Hibir resigned, according to Al Jareeda, after disagreements arose following the dismissal of 56 judges and 26 prosecutors by the Sudanese Committee on the Dismantling of the June 30 Regime. On this day in 1989, ousted President Omar Al-Bashir led a bloodless coup.
The attorney general objected to the decision, claiming that it hampered his work and jeopardised his freedom, as well as the fact that it affected prosecutors who were in charge of committees investigating alleged wrongdoing by other prosecutors.
