An accident which occurred on Friday afternoon in Ugbogui, Edo state claimed the lives of about 50 persons.


The tragedy occurred this afternoon when a diesel tanker and a trailer collided with a fully-loaded commercial luxury bus.


Eye witness accounts say the bus which was travelling from Lagos caught fire and the only three passengers were seen trying to escape the inferno but there are fears that they may not have survived the fire.


Military officials are reported to be controlling traffic in the area while fire service men are yet to arrive the scene.
