This is contained in a statement by the Corps Public Education Officer (CPEO), Mr Bisi Kazeem, on Friday in Abuja.
Biu, however, called on road users,especially fleet operators, to exercise caution and be conscious of their environment whenever they are driving.
He urged motorists to avoid driving against stipulated speed limit on all roads, saying it was necessary for all to take caution.
Biu said adhering to safety measures were important to help the corps eradicate or minimise incidences of a road accident caused by impatience and lack of mental alertness of motorists.
“This advice came following the fatal crash that occurred involving a Mitsubishi L300 commercial Bus with vehicle registration number XE 245 AWK and a DAF Leyland Truck with registration number T-19094 LA at the aforementioned route.
“According to the first information report from the scene of the crash, eyewitnesses stated that the DAF Leyland truck was coming from Onitsha while the Mitsubishi L300 bus was coming from Nteje axis.
“8 vehicles got to the failed portion at the same time when the container of the Leyland Truck fell on the Mitsubishi Bus, ” he said.
The accident, which involved 10 people, killed five female adults, injured two male adults and two female adults.
The Corps Marshal commended FRSC operatives for their prompt response to the distressing situation.
This, he said, ensured immediate evacuation of the victims to the hospital for medical attention and clearance of obstruction, allowing free flow of traffic within the axis.
