PHOTOS: 24 Killed In Jigawa Road Crash

No fewer than 24 people were reported killed in a ghastly motor accident around Gwamfai Village in Jahun Local Government of Jigawa State, north-west Nigeria.

A media aide to the Jigawa State Governor, Auwal Sankara, confirmed the incident  on Monday.

The governor’s aide said that the accident occurred after the driver of the bus involved lost control and bumped into a petrol seller along the road.

He said the Toyota bus which took off from Jahun Local Government Area was heading to Shuwarin Market in Kiyawa Local Government before the incident occurred.

Sankara noted that Governor Mohammed Abubakar saw the accident on his way to Gumel and instructed the local council chairman to ensure he assists the families of the passengers.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in Jigawa, Abdu Jinjiri, also confirmed the incident.

He, however, said the police have yet to get details of the exact cause of the incident and the casualty figure.
