Ebonyi State recorded a tragic incident over the weekend as a minibus conveying eleven passengers plunged into a mining pit located at Enyigba community in Ikwo Local Government Area of the state.
It was gathered by our correspondent that the bus,which was fully loaded with passengers, took off from the popular motor park known as Ochi-Udo motor park located along Afikpo road in Abakaliki, capital of the state.
The number of passengers are yet to be identified at the time of filing this report, although it was further gathered that the occupants are majorly Ikwo indigenes who were returning home from the capital city, Abakaliki.
A reliable source disclosed that the bus reached Enyigba community where people were mining and the driver lost control of the steering and it plunged into a pit filled with water.
An eyewitness who equally spoke on the incident, said the occupants of the bus are still inside the mining pit, adding that up till now, “the bus is yet to be recovered due to the level of water inside the pit.”
