Mary Ibitolu, a female 200 level student, was knocked off a moving motorcycle and crushed to death by a bus which had lost its brake in motion.
A female 200 level student of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) has died in a road crash involving a motorcycle and a school bus.
Mary Ibitolu, a law student, was knocked off a moving motorcycle and crushed to death in Oshogbo, the Osun state capital in Nigeria.
Pulse gathered that the student was riding on the commercial motorcycle when the bus, allegedly owned by a private school based in the town, failed break and struck them.
Ibitolu fell off the motorcycle and was crushed by the same bus.
Passers-by rushed her to the hospital but she died from her injuries.
The cyclist and a commuter who was knocked down while waiting at the bus stop survived with injuries.
A street hawker who spoke to Punch said the driver was trying to push-start the vehicle minutes before the accident.
"He tried to stop the bus from hitting the okada but he failed,"
"She fell off the motorcycle and was rushed to a hospital at Okefia, but she died there."
A member of the Nigerian Federation of Catholic Students at the OAU, Mr. Timothy Agbor, told Punch that the deceased was a member of the fellowship and a "God-fearing lady."
Policemen have taken the bus and the motorcycle to the Dada Estate Police Station but declined comments over the matter.
