The driver and other passengers of the mini bus have been taken to hospital for treatment, while the correctional vehicle was allowed to go to court.

A driver who spoke to InsightMedia at the scene said he was one of those that carried the victims to the hospital and that they are responding to treatment.

“I just left hospital. No one is dead. The driver has fracture but he’s responding to treatment.” The driver identified as Wale said.
