He explained that the driver lost control at a point at Rigachukun, in Igabi local government area of Kaduna State and the bus somersaulted killing nine of the passengers while the 10 others sustained varying degrees of injuries.

He said the victims were rushed to a hospital at Kakuri, Kaduna State, where seven other victims gave up the ghost.

“The remaining three victims are still undergoing treatment.

“We implore the general public to discontinue the attribution of this painful loss of lives to banditry,’’ he stated.
