Tragedy struck the city of Ile Ife today as a Marcopolo bus coming from Akure crushed a bike, killing two of its on boarders; an OAU Aspirant and the Bike driver.
According to a reliable source, the aspirants were coming from Moro where they went to write their exam. They were three on the bike (bikeman inclusive).
There was a Marcopolo bus coming from Akure but was on the wrong lane i.e, it was facing those coming from Ibadan as a result of poor road network.
The bike that the guys boarded was crushed very close to the dual road that linked Ife and Moro. The bikeman identified simply as Sunday and one of the two students identified as Michael Oladunjoye died instantly with the second student lying helplessly.
The second student that was in a state of coma was rushed to OAUTHC where he is receiving treatment, but the driver of the marcopolo has been arrested by the Police and he is presently at Moore.
May the soul of the departed rest in perfect peace.
