Three travellers lost their lives, while two others sustained injuries on Wednesday, along Kaduna-Abuja road.
A resident of Kakau village, along Kaduna-Abuja express road, Mallam Nasir Idris said the accident was caused by overspeeding.
According to him, the accident was caused by a tire burst as the bus ran into a pothole.
“I was on my farm along the Kaduna-Abuja road when suddenly, I heard loud noise. As I rushed there with several other villagers, dust first covered everywhere. When the dust settled, three dead bodies were lying down,” he said.
