27 April 2016, 10:32

Ado Ekiti - Tears flowed freely as the corpses of the six medical doctors and their driver, who died in an accident, arrived in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital.

The doctors were on their way to the Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) in Sokoto, when they had an accident on the Abuja-Kaduna Expressway.

The auto crash happened about 60 kilometres to Kaduna, after the rear tyre of the bus of the state chapter of the association busted on motion. The bus transported about 14 passengers.

The survivors and the bodies were conveyed in seven ambulances and were received by Governor Ayo Fayose and other senior government officials.

The six doctors were Tunde Aladesanmi of the Federal Teaching Hospital, Ido-Ekiti (FETHI); Ojo Taiwo of Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital (EKSUTH); NMA Secretary Akinyele Alex;  J. Ogunseye of the Hospitals Management Board; President, EKSUTH branch of Association of Resident Doctors (ARD), O. Olajide, Dr Adeniyi James of the FETHI and their driver, Moses Ajibola.
