Accident occurs in Benin as commuters hurry home in a bid to beat curfew (video)


4 vehicles were involved in an accident in Benin, Edo state, as commuters hurried home to beat the 7pm curfew set by the state government.

According to reports, the incident happened at the popular Upper Mission Road in Benin.

In a video taken at the scene of the incident, the cars involved in the accident are seen piled on top of each other, making viewers wonder how it happened.

The vehicles included an 18-seater passenger bus, a red car, an ash car and a truck fully loaded with 7up soda drinks.

According to reports, no life was lost. Those involved in the accident were quickly rushed to the hospital.

Recall that on April 19, Governor Godwin Obaseki imposed a 10-day dusk-to-dawn curfew on Edo, with effect from April 20.

This was in a bid to curtail the spread of the deadly coronavirus as he planned to increase screening and testing of citizens amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The curfew is expected to be reviewed tomorrow as the initial 10-day lapses.
