Longsan, who promised to give more details, however, said that so far seven persons were confirmed dead.

”As we speak, I’m still waiting for a comprehensive report from our men on ground, but so far, we are told seven people lost their lives.

”We are also told that over seventy persons were loaded in the truck which crashed at Panyam in Mangu on their way back to Jos,” he said.

Longsan said that the injured were currently receiving treatment at a hospital in Mangu.
