The spokesperson for the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Agency, Babatunde Akinbiyi, said the vehicles involved were an unregistered Howo truck and a Toyota Hiace Bus with registration number BEN 823 ZW.

Akinbiyi disclosed further that the accident occurred due to speeding on the part of the bus driver which led to loss of control and eventual collision with the truck.
