19 Killed, Seven Others Injured As Four Vehicles Collide In Kano


Nineteen people were killed when four vehicles collided on a busy road in Kano state, a road safety official said Monday.

The accident occurred late Sunday at Dinyar Madiga village, 85 kilometres (52 miles) from Kano, the state capital, said Zubairu Mato of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC).

“A total of 19 people died in the accident involving four vehicles, including two buses and two cars,” Mato said, adding that seven others were seriously injured.

“The speeding vehicles collided while trying to dodge potholes,” he said.

Accidents are common on Nigeria’s poorly maintained roads, caused by reckless driving, speeding, and disregard for traffic rules.

In April, 19 wedding guests were killed in nearby Jigawa state when their overloaded bus skidded off the road and crashed after a tyre burst.
