Ekiti - Six doctors from the Nigerian Medical Association have died in an accident on their way to take part in the 56th annual general conference and delegates meeting in Sokoto.
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 driver was said to have slammed the brake after the incident, leading to the bus somersaulting.
Peter Ogunnubi, the public relations officer of the Lagos state chapter of the organisation, said that the affected officials took off from Ekiti state on their way to Sokoto State.
