The accident, which involved a white-coloured Hiace bus number plates EDA28XA, occurred around 10 a.m on Thurday, September 24, along the Calabar-Ikom Highway in Mbarakom Community, Akamkpa Local Government Area of the State.

According to an eyewitness, the crash was caused by brake failure while the vehicle was on high speed. Another witness, Albert Asuquo, who helped in the rescue operation, said that the injured passengers were taken to the General Hospital in Akamkpa alongside the corpses.

A neighbour of the some of the deceased persons who gave his name as Mr. Effiong, said they were in a chartered bus going to a burial of another neighbour who passed away.

“I know some of them very well, they are my neighbours and we stay in the same yard. Someone in the area died and they were going for the burial. It was a chartered vehicle for the burial. May their souls rest in peace.” He said.
