She said that “the vehicle which was heavily loaded with Jerry cans of palm oil and over 60 passengers was trying to ascend the ramp but started rolling backwards and lost control.

She added that the dead have been taken to mortuary.

She called on road users to be conscious always and obey traffic regulations to avoid being caught in accidents that could lead to loss of lives and property.
