Boi told that so far 37 people have been confirmed dead in this accident and most of them could not be identified because they were completely burnt. The collision occurred near Jakana village, about 35 km from Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state. The accident occurred when a tire of the bus burst and rammed into a vehicle coming from the opposite direction.

 

In this regard, Federal Road Safety Corps Sector Commander told reporters that the accident happened due to excessive speed. One of these buses went down the road uncontrollably and collided with the bus coming from the other side.
