16 Police Recruits Burnt to Death in Kwara Auto Crash

No fewer than 16 police recruits were burnt to death while six others were critically injured in an auto accident on  Sunday in Omu Aran, Kwara State.

The victims were said to be on their way  to Nasarawa State when the accident occurred at about  10am.

An unspecified number of women were said to be among  the dead in the accident involving an 18-seater Hummer bus and a Mercedes Benz 190 model.

According to eyewitness reports, the driver of the Mercedes Benz had a locked steering and in an attempt to make the steering free, the vehicle veered off to the other side of the road and the Hummer bus rammed onto it, hit an electric pole and a house before it burst into flame.

Most of the occupants of the bus, which took off from Ilorin, were said to be of Kwara State origin and had just concluded their police training.
