However, Enugu State Sector Commander Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Mr Joseph Toby, who confirmed the incident on the telephone said, “My boys are still at the accident scene. It was a commercial vehicle that was involved in the crash that was involved in fire. So my people are still there, as I am telling you now we don’t know the exact number of persons that were involved and I don’t want to start giving wrong information.
“But as soon as details are gathered, we will post it online. We don’t know the number of persons that were involved. It happened yesterday night. Throughout the night we were there with the fire service to make sure we put out the fire but because of the sit-at-home, we found it difficult to go there this morning. But eventually, I have taken my boys and we are there now. Any number you see is just speculation because we have to be very sure of what we give to the public.”
