Eleven occupants of a 14- seater bus with registration number ASB 109 AM, all Clergymen of the Anglican Diocese of Asaba escaped sudden death recently
The clergymen were on their way to Portharcourt for the All Anglican Clergy Conference.
The accident was caused by a runaway tipper driver who hit the bus the clergymen were traveling in from the rear.
The driver was trying to escape from Policemen on the highway.
Thei mpact of the collision caused the bus to somersault. But no death was recorded.
It will be recalled that the Anglican Diocese of Asaba buried one of their own; the Rev. Canon Sunday Monu who passed on barely two weeks now after brief illness.
Speaking to this reporter,a concerned church member wondered what it feels like to be in a vehicle that is somersaulting.
She also thanked God that there was no explosion that could have caused the bus belonging to Bethel Anglican Church,Ukwu-Nzu to go up in flames.
