There was pandemonium in the popular Ipata market in the heart of Ilorin, Kwara State capital yesterday when a water tanker  reportedly crushed two school children to death and caused serious injury to two others. Angry youths in the area reportedly destroyed the vehicles beyond repair with the driver escaping the mob action. The state sector commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Sunday Maku, who confirmed the incident last night , said investigations had commenced on the accident. Vanguard reliably gathered that the tanker’s brake failed and it rammed  into the school children on the road leading to Ipata market.
