A News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reporter saw the bus with registration number KTU-465DN hit a median barrier and pull off a concrete street light before somersaulting.
Sympathizers drove the wounded children and a caregiver to Topaz Hospital.
The injured bus driver fled the scene, presumably fearing a mob attack.
