The accident reportedly occurred at the Giri Roundabout bridge in Abuja.

In a video on social media, passers-by could be seen offering support to INEC officials with electoral materials scattered on the ground.

According to eyewitnesses, some of the passengers were injured, while one of them sustained a head injury.

The eye witness, however, added that some senior officials of the NSCDC were moved to a different location.

He said, “When the accident happened the people at the back hit the wood and one person in front had a cut on the head. I don’t know if he will be able to survive.

“We then called for help. But some of the senior officers were moved to Gwarindada.”
