Four die in Bauchi accidents

Four people have been killed in two different fatal accidents that occurred within three hours in Bauchi State.

The state Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Yusuf Abdullahi, confirmed the two separate accidents.

“There were two crashes today, which led to the loss of four lives. The first crash happened in the morning along Awala roundabout from Gidan Mai.

 “However, the rescue operation was done by the Motor Transport Department (MTD) of the state Police Command. Someone called our distress 122 line to inform us, but before we got there, the police had rescued them,” he added.

Yusuf said the first accident involved a Sharon and a Honda Civic.

He said the Sharon was trying to avoid a collision with the Honda Civic when it went off the road and crashed, killing one person.

 He said the second accident occurred when his patrol team was on their way to the wedding of the daughter of the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu in Azare.

 He attributed the cause of the accident to over-speeding.

 According to him, “The incident happened around 10.30am, at 7km along Misau-Zadawa route. One person was killed at the spot while the two were critically injured and were conveyed to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Azare where they later died also.”

 He said the three dead bodies were deposited at the morgue at the FMC, Azare where they would be released to their loved ones for burial.

 The sector commander reiterated his appeal that drivers should always concentrate and observe the speed limit caution while driving.
