- A passenger bus of STC has burst into flames
-The disaster erupted at Nkwanta
A traveller bus belonging to the State Transport Corporation (STC) shockingly burst into flames while conveying passengers from Nkwanta to Accra.
All passengers on board escaped for their lives when they saw the dashboard of the vehicle catch fire in the early hours of Saturday. Passengers say the fire could have been managed had it not been for the faulty fire extinguisher which failed to work.
Though no life was lost, luggage and some vital belongings of the passengers perished in the fire.
This incident remains the very first in years since the rebranding of STC came to force. Following a poor performance and massive loss of revenue, the newly restructured STC boasts of the best service including the free access to WIFI internet services.
Meanwhile, authorities at the transport corporation are yet to issue a statement on the disaster.
