The Kogi Sector Command of the Federal Road Safety Commission has blamed the auto crash that led to the death, on Tuesday, of Prof. Festus Iyayi, on wrongful overtaking by a vehicle in the convoy of Kogi state governor, Idris Wada. The News Agency of Nigeria quoted the Kogi State Sector Commander of the FRSC, Olakunle Motajo, as saying preliminary report by his commission suggested the accident was caused by a Toyota Hilux bus in Wada’s convoy.
The vehicle, Motajo said, made “wrongful overtaking”, ramming into another Toyota Hiace bus belonging to the UNIBEN ASUU chapter, in which Iyayi and two others were travelling in the opposite direction.
Some residents of Banda community, who witnessed the accident, said the two vehicles collided and the ASUU bus somersaulted three times before hitting a big tree in the bush.
Mr. Iyayi died instantly while two others, including a woman, who sustained fracture in her left arm, were injured. The driver of the bus escaped unhurt, Motajo said.
