• Hotelier, one other assassinated
Five persons were on Monday feared dead in an accident on the Asaba/Kwale Expressway in Delta State. The accident involved a commercial bus and a car.
Many others sustained injuries.
An eyewitness, Joshua Nduka, said a Mazda car driving from the Kwale axis collided with a Toyota Hiace bus. He said a diversion on the road due to ongoing construction forced motorists to drive against traffic.
It was gathered that the incident happened about 2.20pm on Sunday. Details about the incident were not clear as at last night.
Police spokesman Onome Onovwakpoyeya confirmed the incident but could not give more information. “It is true there was an assassination and two people were killed,” he added.
