The PPRO reports that a luxury Mercedes Benz bus operated by Ifesinachi Transport Ltd caught fire and was completely destroyed at Oke Ado junction in Ijebu Mushin.


SP Odutola stated, “It happened in Oke Ado junction at Ijebu Mushin. A luxury bus of Mercedes Benz was burnt down.

“The vehicle was coming from Maza Maza before it encountered the hoodlums. No reference to gun was made. They (the hoodlums) carried cutlasses.

“The 59-seater bus was said to be operated by Ifesinachi Transport Ltd,” he added.

In the midst of the chaos, social media influencer Chude Nnamdi shared a harrowing account from one of the passengers.
