Ten passengers were reported to have sustained serious injuries on Sunday in a ghastly motor accident which occurred at the Bolingo Junction, Abuja.

The accident involved a commercial bus heading for Ilorin and a taxi.

Two of the victims, who spoke to NAN at the National Hospital, said the accident occurred as a result of disregard to traffic rule by the driver of the bus

They said the driver of the bus which they boarded from Nyanya to Ilorin was at fault as he did not obey the traffic light.

Mr Ahmed Mumuni, a victim, who works as security guard at the Federal Polytechnic Offa, said the driver would not listen to complaints of his passengers when they pleaded with him to reduce speed.
