Sector Commander, Kaduna State Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Kabir Yusuf Nadabo, has announced that 12 persons passed on while 28 others suffered various degrees of injuries in an accident that happened along Kano-Zaria highway on Monday, March 4, 2024.

Nadabo revealed that the accident happened at Tashar Yari village around 7: 30 a.m. due to unfair overtaking, overspeeding, and overloading by a trailer with registration number KTG 454 ZZ.

He stated that the vehicle was journeying to the northern commercial city of Kano when the regrettable incident took place.

He noted that the source of the crash was unfair overtaking, overspeeding, and overloading which sorrowfully resulted in 12 recorded casualties.

It was gathered that the Chairman of Makarfi Local Government and the Unit Commander, Tashar Yari, were on ground to investigate the incident.

Also, an investigation of the incident disclosed that forty (40) persons were connected with the crash, 28 sustained injuries,  and 12 were dead.

Those who sustained injuries were moved to Makarfi General Hospital for medical treatment. The possessor of the vehicle who is in Azare, Bauchi State, has been communicated and directed to report to RS1.1 Kaduna Sector Command while the driver of the Trailer is allegedly among the dead.

“What we observed today is preventable, hence our determination to continue to reach out to stakeholders, especially transport unions, to preach and sensitize their drivers on the dangers of over speeding, overloading, dangerous driving, and use of mobile phones while driving, etc

“The Corps in Kaduna will struggle to continue to work hard and liaise with transport stakeholders and the media in disseminating the word of safety.

“I want to plead to drivers to imbibe the culture and conduct of safe driving especially on Highways. May I use this medium to thank the Kaduna State Government for the vigorous support to FRSC activities in the state, and to the media for aligning with the FRSC moral principles in spreading the word of safety,” Nadabo stated.
