The Nation gathered that all passengers trapped in the bus were rescued before the bus went into flames.
Narrating her ordeal, one of the passengers, Mrs. Virginia Ogbuogwu who claimed she was sitting beside the driver, said many of them sustained varying degrees of injury.
She said, “I suddenly noticed the driver was feeling uncomfortable after stopping at intervals and checking the dashboard.
“Immediately he saw smoke coming out from the bus, he quickly stopped, quietly alighted and disappeared without saying a word to us.”
Another victim, Mrs Paulina Una who sustained injury, said they were taken unawares by the incident which she said occurred in a split of seconds, regretting that they could not retrieve their valuables.
