Nine persons out of ten wedding guests have been killed in a fatal accident at Ekpon junction on the ever-busy Agbor-Ewohimi road in the Igueben local government area, Edo state.
The guests were travelling from BENIN city to Ewatto in Esan South East local government area of Edo state to attend a wedding ceremony of their friend and relation.
However, the bus conveying them collided with a trailer carrying cement to the South-Eastern part of Nigeria, killing nine of the guests on the spot.
The deceased, who was neatly dressed, did not make their way to the hospital emergency room but straight to the mortuary.
One of them is now currently on oxygen in the hospital in EDO central.
Most of the deceased was said to have hailed from Ewatto in EDO state.
Standard Gazette crime correspondent Festus Alenkhe gathered that the families are now in serious mourning as they both lost their children in the accident.
