As of Thursday afternoon, the death toll had risen to 61, while a total of 25 people are receiving treatment at various hospitals.
A statement released Thursday and signed by the Acting Head of Communications, Bernice Akologo consoled the bereaved families, saying, “It is really a sad moment for the Company as we are in a state of mourning for our late colleague and our cherished passengers.”
According to the statement, a team from the MMT have been sent to the scene of the accident to assist the police with investigations.
