Ebonyi State Governor Dave Umahi, on Saturday lamented the death of about 20 people in an accident on the Ezillo section of the Abakaliki-Enugu Highway on Friday afternoon. 

Governor Umahi, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Emma Anya,  noted that information available to him showed that the accident was caused by overtaking and called on motorists to avoid being in a haste while driving.

The governor also called on the FRSC to deploy more of its men on the highways in Ebonyi State to check reckless driving, especially by commercial vehicle drivers.

The governor, who lamented that the accident on Friday occurred barely two weeks after the killing of 14 people on the Afikpo-Okigwe highway, directed the Commissioner for Health to move to a hospital in Enugu where some survivors were taken to.

“His Excellency directive is to ensure that the injured were given adequate medical attention.”

He wished the survivors quick recovery. He also prayed for the repose of the souls of departed and asked God to grant their families the heart to bear the loss of their loved ones
