As many as four persons have been confirmed dead when an 18 seater bus plunged into river Niger in Koton Karfe area of Kogi State.

Our Source reports that 13 others have been rescued alive while one person is still missing in the accident.

The accident occurred around 7.30pm on Tuesday when the driver of the bus slept off and lost control, thereby, plunging into the river.

According to the State Commandant, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, (NSCDC), Suleiman Mafara, who disclosed this to newsmen in Lokoja, on the receipt of the distress call, his men of the Disaster and Crisis Unit in conjunction with the Federal Roads Safety Corps and volunteer divers were mobilised to the scene.

He added that his men and others Security personnel are working round the clock to recover the only person yet to be accounted for.

Mafara disclosed that the corpse have been deposited in a morgue in Lokoja.

The NSCDC Commandant, however, warned drivers and commuters to adhere strictly to road safety guidelines to prevent avoidable carnage on the highways.
