Tension in Osun as commercial vehicle runs over three pupils



There was tension on Monday at the Ilesa area in Osun State, after a commercial vehicle ran over three siblings who were on their way to school, along the Kajola/Igbominasi Highway.

This was as residents of the area blocked the highway in protest of the tragic incident.

Ripples Nigeria learnt that the blockage led to a gridlock that compelled motorists to seek alternative routes.

According to a resident of the area, the pupils, who are feared dead, were run over by a bus and have been rushed to a hospital before the police arrived, noting that the police, thereafter, towed the commercial bus away.
