Ibule – At least four university students were on Saturday killed in a ghastly motor accident, while they were on a private religious trip, The Sun reports.
The students were undergraduates of the Federal University of Technology (FUTA).
The accident occurred at Ibule in Ifedore Local government areas of the state, just a few metres from the university campus.
Ten other students were injured.
The accident which involved a Toyota Hiace bus and a motorcycle was caused by over speeding on the part of the driver of the bus, police were quoted as saying.
Sahara Reporters quoted some sources as saying that some of the deceased were final year students of the institution.
The report said, however, that the students were travelling to Lagos state for a wedding.
