5 dead in Kaduna-Abuja highway accident


An accident along the Kaduna-Abuja road on Tuesday claimed five lives, with six other passengers sustaining serious injuries.

According to Mallam Ahmed Jibril, an eyewitness who was also a passenger in one of the vehicles involved in a head-on collision, the accident was a result of overspeeding.

Jibril, who sustained a minor injury, said they were travelling in an 18-seater bus from Abuja to Kano when their vehicle collided with a Toyota pick-up van with a lone driver from Kaduna, close to Kateri.

The bodies of the dead passengers and those injured had been evacuated to an undisclosed hospital, he said.
