speeding on the expressway.

the bus entrance to prevent the pupils from

escaping. One of the pupils in Senior Secondary School

suspects from the mob, adding that injured pupils had been taken to

the hospital. He said, "After two of the pupils alighted at Iya

Abiodun bus stop, other pupils observed that the driver took to the

fast lane and started speeding. "When they told the driver and the

conductor where they would alight, the two men laughed at them. While

on motion, two boys jumped out at different intervals, but the driver

refused to stop. This was what aroused the curiosity of a motorist,

who blocked him three bus stops from where he should have stopped."
