This tragic incident happened on Saturday afternoon at Enyigba in Ikwo LGA in a pit where mineral resources are mined.
According to an eye witness who didn't want his name to be mentioned said that the bus was on the high speed on that Saturday while he was following them from behind, suddenly he sighted them from afar running inside the water along Royal Salt company by Enyigba in Ikwo Local Government Area.
On the scene of this unfortunate incident, both the bus and passengers inside the bus are yet to be found inside the pit.
However, the Governor of Ebonyi State has enforce security agents and the community stakeholders work together in order to rescue the commercial bus and it's occupants from the pit.
We look forth for proper investigation and trace of the dead bodies of those passengers who got missing inside the mining pit.
We ask the general public especially those staying in Ikwo to put calls on their friends and family and who might have travelled but haven't hear from them to ascertain if they're safe.
