The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Monday confirmed the death of 17 persons and injury of four others in a road traffic accident at Zubali village along with Kano-Potiskum road.

Mr Yelwa Dio, Yobe FRSC Sector Commander, said that the accident occurred Sunday night, involving a bus that rammed into a truck.

“Our rescue team discovered 21 persons in the two vehicles involved -14 males, one female adult and two female children, all perished in the accident.

The bodies of the deceased have been deposited in the General Hospital, Potiskum, and the injured are also receiving medical assistance in the hospital,’’ Dio said.

He blamed the incident on speeding, lamenting that most drivers never needed to their warning.

If you must embark on night journeys, ensure your lightening system is functional.

“Passengers must also ensure that they call drivers to order if they are speeding because if there is an accident, they will be involved,’’ he said.
