“The bus driver, whose name is not yet known, lost control and ran into some people taking shelter under a tree. You know the weather is hot, so they were under the tree, and some of them were killed,” he said.
Abdullahi said 24 people were inside the bus while the remaining 11 were taking shelter under the tree.
