The Federal Government says it has identified six most dangerous accident flash points that have been claiming the lives of people along Kano-Birnin Kudu road for over 50 years in Jigawa State.

Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, Dr Babangida Hussain disclosed this after inspecting the 11.5 kilometer Birnin Kudu highway.

Hussain explained that the visit was aimed at expressing the Federal Government’s condolences and identifying the most dangerous shaft curves claiming the lives of Nigerians.

“You can see this road was constructed for over 50 years ago, it needs a quick redesign and alignments to remove all these unnecessary bends.

‘On this single bend alone, you can see about 4 different mass graves where over 80 people were buried after they were burnt to ashes as a result of different motor accidents,” he stated.

Saga Gist reports that the recent one claimed the lives of 20 persons on their way to attend a wedding Fatiha in Gombe State.

The accident involved two ‘Hummer’ buses and all the passengers were burnt beyond recognition.

The Permanent Secretary said a team of engineers were sent to supervise and design a possible solution.

According to him the first phase of the work will cover six kilometres and emphasis will be given to the identified accident flashpoints.

He expressed the federal government’s readiness to act quickly as soon as the team of engineers submitted their reports.
