No fewer than seven lives were lost on Christmas day as a luxury bus carrying 63 passengers lost control in Ogun State.

According to Daily Post, the tragedy took place at the Ososa bridge, along the Benin-Ore highway at about 12. 20 am on Saturday.

The vehicle is a red-coloured Mercedes Benz reportedly owned by Izu Chukwu Motors, Onitsha.

Conveying 40 male adults, 15 female adults, five male children, the vehicle took off from Ojuelegba, Lagos, and apart from those who died, seven others sustained injuries.
