No fewer than 14 passengers were burnt to death in a fatal road mishap near the Four-Corners Enugu on Sunday night.
The ill-fated 14-seater bus, which was said to be travelling from Imo State to Adamawa, reportedly ran into a trailer before going up in flames.
The Trumpet gathered that all the passengers except one were said to have burnt beyond recognition in the accident, which occurred at the Enugu end of the Enugu/Port Harcourt expressway.
Only one passenger survived the auto crash, with varying versions of how he escaped. Some said sympathizers rescued him; others said he jumped out of the moving vehicle from the window.
The lone survivor, it was learnt, is currently receiving treatment at the Emergency Unit of the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, UNTH, Ituku-Ozalla.
