Nine passengers are dead after fire engulfed a Lagos-bound commercial bus that was travelling along Warewa Long Bridge on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Ogun State. 

The accident, which occurred at 4pm on Saturday, also left nine other passengers severely injured, Punch reports. They were promptly taken to the Accident and Emergency Centre, Ojota for treatment.

Investigations are still ongoing, as authorities are trying to figure out what caused the accident. All that is know presently is that the bus was heading from the Ibafo region of Ogun State to Ketu in Lagos when the accident happened.

Family members of the deceased passengers are yet to be contacted because the corpses and personal effects, were burnt beyond recognition. As a result, there is no means of identifying them.

Corpses have been deposited at Sagamu General Hospital Mortuary.

    Hmmm, Nigeria!!!! The country that kills its young! Please peeps don’t board buses that look kurukere or are overloaded with passengers. In this country where the craze to make money is very high and bus drivers continue using buses that even auto-mobile makers will be surprised still exist, the least you can do is protect yourself. So sad.
