Local media personnel who was at the scene of the crash said that one of the cars was a green Volkswagen and having JJJ 220 BB as its number plate. The other car was completely totaled.

Three of the victims were said to be inside the burnt vehicle while another charred body was spotted by the side of the burnt car.

Two other passengers, though not burnt, were found lying dead. One of them had both legs broken with some teeth falling off.

Observers at the scene saw two military uniforms inside a travelling case and we're of the view that one of the passengers could be an army officer.

A man who took to controlling traffic that has built up as a result of the incident said that when he got to the scene was the moment the Volkswagen driver was being taken out of the car after sustaining severe injuries and rushed to a nearby hospital.

Speaking further, he disclosed that some hours after the crash, no officials of the FRSC nor from the police command were yet to show up at the scene despite the army checkpoint that was just a few kilometers away from the crash.

This is quite unfortunate.
