Seven school children were killed yesterday as a truck driver lost control of his vehicle and rammed into a classroom. The accident happened at Ogbor Hill area of Aba, Abia state, in Glorious International Academy located on 42 Opobo road.

Fifteen other pupils sustained various degrees of injuries.

The driver was on his way to Ovom waterside to evacuate sand. The pupils were having their morning devotion in a classroom when the incident occurred.

The pupils have concluded their examinations and returned to the school to have their end-of-the-year party.

So unfortunate. May the souls of the departed kids rest in peace.
