A Caterpillar heavy duty vehicle
yesterday crashed into  Army Day School in Jikoko, Mpape, a suburb of
Abuja, killing 10 of the pupils on the spot
 
The unfortunate  incident
occurred at about 9 am yesterday when the students were receiving lectures.

One of the mothers, who was said to
have lost two of her children in the crash, fainted when she heard of the
tragedy. According to sources, the same woman has another six year old daughter
who was seriously injured in the accident. The girl was rushed to the Maitama
General Hospital.
The girl, who was unconscious when
she was rushed to the hospital, was said to have lost her fingers and her two
knees broken by the heavy duty vehicle.
An eye witness, Tosin Ayomide told
Newsmen that the presence of the heavy duty vehicle was surprising given that
the school is an open field.
Ayomide said that the accident was
so bad that the children, including the ones that died, had to be dug out of the
ground where they were rammed into.
