36 Nigerians die as petrol truck crashes into market

- DT

Thirty-six people were crushed to death when a gasoline-laden truck skidded off a busy highway and crashed into a roadside market in central Nigeria, road marshals said on Friday.

The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in Benue state said the truck veered off the Makurdi-Gboko highway after a tyre burst and rammed into three stationary vehicles before it crashed into the busy farm produce market near the cement town of Gboko.

“No fewer than 36 people died in the accident on Wednesday,” said sector commander Audu Ardo from the state capital Makurdi. “Some died on the spot, while others died later in hospital.”

Ardo said 15 others who sustained critical injuries were still in hospital. At least 43 people were killed in June when the truck in which they were riding crashed in a ditch on a northeastern Nigerian highway. reuters
