TRAGEDY struck on Tuesday evening at 9th Mile Corner near Enugu the Enugu State capital, following a multiple road accident that claimed about nine students of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN).

It was gathered that the students were traveling home after the UNN authorities ordered them out of the hostels for a mid-term break, even as it was believed the institution’s sudden closure was to avert students’ riot over acute shortage of water and power supply in the campus.
Although the Enugu State Police Command put the death figure at three, eyewitness account said the number was higher.
In a statement by the spokesman of the Enugu State Police Command, Ebere Amaraizu, he said, “three persons have been confirmed dead while five others sustained various degrees of injuries.”
He added that, “the auto crash, involves a diesel truck with registration number AWK 311 XB, which is believed to have lost control as a result of suspected brake failure and had hit two buses with registration numbers UWN 406 XA and UWN 57 XA and also a motorcycle.
“The injured are being attended to at Our Saviour Hospital, 9th Mile corner Ngwo, while the dead bodies are also deposited at the same hospital’s mortuary.”
A student, who was travelling when the accident occurred, blamed the University authority for the development.
“It was very sad to see our fellow students die like that; we were chased out of school and now they have also been forced out of the world,” he added
