An auto-crash resulting from a bust tyre from a commercial bus on Monday, April 25, somersaulted and killed six members of The Nigerian Medical Association, (NMA), near Kaduna state.

Peter Ogunnubi, public relations officer, Lagos state chapter of NMA, in a statement said that the ghastly accident took place while the medical doctors were traveling to Sokoto state, for the 56th annual general conference and delegates meeting.

According to Ogunnubi, there were 14 passengers on board the commercial bus when the incident occurred.

His words: “Six of them are already dead,” though their names could not be disclosed now.”

Independent gathered that the association is the largest in West African sub-region, with a 40,000 membership strength spread across the 36 states of the federation and Abuja, the federal capital territory.
