Four persons died, while three others sustained injuries in a ghastly motor accident on Sunday at Nami village, Agai Local Government Area of Niger State.
The Sector Commander of the FRSC in Niger, Mr. Kumar Tsukwam, told newsmen on Monday that the accident occurred at about 10.00 p.m. on Sunday night, and it was an articulated vehicle that was loaded with chemicals and 49 male passengers seated on top from Lagos, heading to Kano State.
In his words, he said, “Forty-nine male persons were involved in the accident; four of them died, while three others sustained injuries and 42 escaped unhurt.
“The injured victims were rescued and taken to the General hospital Lapai, while the dead were deposited at the same hospital mortuary in Lapai.
“The vehicle and items recovered were handed over to the Police outpost office at Nami village for safekeeping,” he said.
Tsukwam blamed the accident on speeding and loss of control by the driver and advised motorists to always observe the speed limits to avoid crashes.
