The youth members were said to be on their way to Abeokuta for their Annual Youth Rotational Service across the Regional Church Council RCC, when the accident occurred along Lagos-Ibadan Expresses way.

According to eye witnesses, one of the tyre of the bus conveying them burst while the vehicle was top speed, causing it to summersault several times.
