No fewer than eleven persons have lost their lives and two critically injured in a ghastly motor accident in Cross River State.
The horrible scene which occurred in Mbarakom Community, Akamkpa Local Government Area of the State. According to eyewitness the cause is as a result of brake failure while the vehicle was on speed.
According to a neighbour of the deceased who gave his name as Mr. Effiong, said he knows some of them that they are his neighbours in the same environment who were in a chartered bus going to a burial of someone in the compound who passed away.
“I know some of them very well, they are my neighbours and we stay in the same yard. Someone in the area died and they were going for the burial. It was a chartered vehicle for the burial. May their souls rest in peace.” He sobbed.
