About four persons died, while 10 others were injured in a crash involving two vehicles on Gumel-Kano road in Jigawa.
Ibrahim Gambo, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) spokesman in Jigawa, confirmed the crash on Monday.
It happened at about 12:25 a.m. when a bus had a head-on collision with another vehicle at Achauya village in Gumel local council.
“A commercial bus (Sharon) with registration number GML 260 XX carrying passengers was involved in a collision with a truck with registration number GUS 648 XA coming from the opposite direction,” stated Mr Gambo. “It could be attributed to speed violations and loss of control. Fourteen persons, consisting of 11 males and three females, were involved in the crash.”
The FRSC official explained that four male passengers were certified dead by a medical doctor at a hospital in the area while seven males and three females were receiving treatment.
He advised motorists to shun night journeys and respect traffic rules to ensure safety on the road.
