A bus conveying members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) went up in flames in Delta state on Friday. 

In a viral video seen on social media, the bus with the inscription, ‘College of Education Warri’, appeared to have made a stop to refill its fuel tank when it suddenly caught fire.

The corps members were seen jumping out from windows while people around helped to rescue some of them.

Alao Olusegun, the NYSC coordinator in Delta, said the bus was conveying corps members from the College of Education, Warri to Asaba for their passing-out ceremony.

The NYSC official however said there was no casualty in the incident.

“The attention of NYSC Management, Delta State has been drawn to reports making the rounds in the social media to the effect that some Corps Members lost their lives in a fire incident that involved a Coaster bus belonging to the College of Education, Warri,” he said in a statement.

“The said vehicle was scheduled to convey Corps Members that served in the Institution to Asaba for their Passing-Out Ceremony.

“However, contrary to what some online reporters peddled, indeed, there was a mild fire incident involving the Coaster bus, however, there was no casualty.
