About 13 wedding guests have been killed with other persons injured in a fatal motor accident in the Etche Local Government Area of Rivers State.

The accident involved a Coaster bus which was occupied with passengers and a truck — it occurred close to Akpoku- Udufor community on Sunday, September 26th.

One Great Missionary on Facebook, who shared the photos from the scene on their page, revealed that the bus was conveying passengers from Afara community in Etche to a community in the neighbouring Imo State for the traditional marriage between one Chief Ambrose Igbokwe Nwuzi and his third wife.

According to a report by The Nation, not up 30 minutes after the bus took off, it collided with a truck killing over 13 of its passengers.

It was gathered that the community was still in shock as the deceased persons were said to be mostly parents.

A source from the area, who identified himself simply as Chibuike stated that the two vehicles had a head-on collision. He blamed the accident on over speeding, adding that after the collision, the bus somersaulted a number of times.

He revealed that the younger brother to the groom and his wife were among the dead casualties. He also shared that while 11 persons died on the spot, two others died on their way to the hospital.

Spokesman of the Rivers State Police Command, Nnamdi Omoni, who confirmed the incident, however, said five corpses were recovered from the scene.

“Yes, I am aware of it. Five bodies were recovered from the scene and deposited at the hospital. Some persons with injuries were taken to the hospital. I don’t know if there were more deaths.” he stated.
