Many people have been reportedly burnt to death in an accident along Lokoja-Abuja highway in Kogi State.
An eyewitness said the accident happened when a fuel laden tanker lost control and collided with vehicles from the opposite direction.
According to an eyewitness, the accident happened directly in front of the Local government secretariat.
Kogi state sector commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Stephen Dawlung, said officials of the commission had been drafted to the area.
“My men are there already. No detail yet. Many were trapped in the accident. The tanker is still burning, causing traffic challenge on the highways presently. I will avail you of the details, once we are through,” the FRSC boss said.
