A driver of one of the private commercial buses plying the University of Ilorin route, simply identified as Lukman, has slumped and died while conveying some students to school.

Nigerian Tribune gathered that the tragic incident, which occurred on Friday, left occupants of the vehicle in shock.

A passenger, who witnessed the incident had narrated in a viral WhatsApp message that he took control of the bus in motion after the development to save other students and avert further tragedy.

“Our bus driver just died on the road while driving us from Sanrab to Unilorin. I was sitting in the front but I wasn’t looking up because I was reading the Qur’an on my phone.

“The other person beside me just called my attention shouting Baba! Baba! ! Baba!!! By the time I looked up, he was already gasping and the bus was drifting away from the road. I had to press the brake, take control and bring it to a halt. He was pronounced dead at the School clinic. Everything happened within 30 minutes”, he said.

A colleague of the deceased, Sulyman Malik, who also confirmed the incident, said that, “He greeted me on Thursday about my own recent accident.

“This just shows that this life is vanity. He has since been buried according to Islamic rites. He was a very handsome man and you would not even think of his death in the next 30 years”.

Also speaking on the development, Director of Information, University of Ilorin, Mr. Kunle Akogun, described the incident as very unfortunate.
