The passengers of a luxury bus en route to Jos in Plateau State from Aba, Abia State, were thrown into confusion on Saturday after a corps member who was one of the passengers jumped out of the speeding bus.
Punch reports that the corps member, identified as Pam, was being escorted by another corps member from Aba to his home after he allegedy developed a strange illness in the village where he was currently undergoing the compulsory one year service in Ebonyi State.
Eyewitness said the corps member developed the illness and within in a week, it became worse, prompting the authorities to send him home to seek proper medical attention.
It was gathered that at a point after Fadan Karshi, along the Jos-Abuja Road, he suddenly overpowered his escort and jumped out through one of the windows in the bus.
The eyewitness, who identified himself simply as George, told our correspondent that the two corps members entered the bus at 9th Mile on the Markudi-Enugu Road on Friday.
He said, “At a point during the journey, Pam started disturbing everybody. He became loud, unruly and uncontrollable.
“As we approached the area after Fadan Karshi, Pam suddenly jumped out of the window. The driver stopped and we all rushed to see if he was alive. He was lucky to have sustained fractures on his legs and arms; but it was very serious.”
Pam was said to have been handed over to his wailing relatives on arrival in Jos.
