One of the survivors told the state Governor, Aminu Masari who was at the scene, that the accident occurred due to brakes failure during a heavy downpour.

According to an eyewitness, the driver of the vehicle with the inscription “Corpers For Christ” tried applying brakes but the bus swerved and hit a nearby tree.

Reacting, the governor directed that the surviving corps members be administered first aid treatment.

He thereafter ordered one of his convoy to convey them and the dead bodies to Katsina, the state’s Capital.
