The deputy governor of Yobe state, Abubakar Ali, was around 9:30 am on Monday involved in a car accident along the Kaduna- Kano expressway.
According to Premium Times, a witness, Sunusi Abdul, said that the incident occurred in Daka-Tsalle town, along the expressway.
“The SUV he was travelling in had a head-on collision with a Toyota Avensis vehicle. Fortunately, the deputy governor’s vehicle did not somersault, but the Toyota car was badly damaged and some of its occupants injured,” he said.
Abdul said the deputy governor’s convoy later continued its trip to Kano.
The accident is coming a day after the Minister of State for Labour, James Ocholi, his wife and son died in a crash along the Kaduna-Abuja expressway.
The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) is yet to comment on the accident.
