"The information we gathered from security agents and a good Samaritan who were involved in the rescue operation because our post is a bit far from the scene of the accident was that the probable cause of the fatal accident  was over-speeding.

"The accident claimed the life of six persons Including;  One adult  Male ( father) identified as Edet Eteng, one adult female (mother) ,four children including three females and one male  all from one family.

"Road users especially drivers must as a matter of responsibility  minimize speed during this rainy season , because a lot can happen that they may could be beyond their  control," he said.

The family  was traveling  from Ugep in Yakurr Local Government Area to  Abuja after the long  holiday and new Yam festival celebration when the unfortunate incident occurred as their car collided face to face with an oncoming truck with two occupants around Otokpuru axis of the road.
