At least 20 killed in Nigerian road crash: report
At least 20 people were killed when a bus collided with a fuel tanker in southwestern Nigeria, a newspaper said Tuesday.

The Nigerian Tribune said the accident occurred on a busy highway linking the economic capital Lagos to the third largest city of Ibadan on Monday and also left several people injured.

The driver of the bus apparently lost control before ramming into an approaching truck transporting petrol.

Accidents occur regularly on Nigeria's poorly-maintained roads due to speeding and a disregard for basic traffic rules.
