An eye witness, one Ayo Idowu, told our correspondent that the incident which happened around 11:45am involved a Toyota Hiace bus with number plate SMK 996 XS, a Ford Jeep with number plate MUS 420 GQ and a tricycle with number plate NND 861 WL
The driver of the Toyota bus, whose identity could not been ascertained as at the time of filing this report was said to have rammed into the Ford Jeep and also hit the tricycle from the rear.
The Metro gathered that the bus driver was trying to evade arrest by Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIOs) on the road at Adeyemi junction, when his brake failed.
Idowu added that the driver also rammed into a trailer after which he alighted from the bus and took to his heels.
It was learnt that the trailer stopped the bus from further crashes before the students came out enmasse to block the road, preventing other vehicles from passing.
The angry students were said to have warned the VIO or any other law enforcement agencies to desist from mounting road blocks at the front of the school.
”We will write the agencies not to come here and conduct any vehicles’ checking again, saying this is dangerous especially for the students, ” they said.
The corpse of the woman has been deposited at the morgue , while the injured victims are undergoing treatment at the hospital.
