The motorcyclists were waiting for passengers beside the Public Service Institute by Dutse-Alhaji Junction along Murtala Muhammed Expressway (Kubwa Road), Abuja when they were killed in the crash.
Five others who were critical injured were taken to the Kubwa General Hospital for medical attention.
The spokesman for the Federal Road Safety Corps, Bisi Kazeem, confirmed the accident, which he attributed to speed violation, mechanical deficient vehicle and dangerous driving.
He explained that one of the corpses had been released to his family for burial while other bodies were deposited at the Kubwa General Hospital morgue.
