At least 18 passengers were feared dead on Saturday, after two buses collided along the Iseyin-Moniya road in Oyo state.
The accident occurred close to Kraal market very close to Iseyin town.
Reports say that the two buses had a head-on collision at a sharp bend along the road.
Uche Chukwura, sector commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in Oyo state, said she hadn’t yet been notified of the incident.
She told the Cable that the delay in notification may be as a result of the network downtime suffered by MTN on Saturday.
Chukwura, however, promised to provide details when it is available.
The 65km Moniya-Ijaiye-Iseyin road, which was recently rehabilitated, was commissioned by the Oyo government in June 2021
