Confirming the accident in a statement on Sunday, the FRSC Sector Commander, Zubairu Mato, said 41 others were injured in the Sunday evening accident.

“We received a call at about 4:10p.m. on Sunday, so we quickly dispatched our personnel and vehicle to the scene for the rescue of victims at about 4:17p.m. as well as clearing the obstructions,” Mr Mato said.

He said the crash occurred as a result of loss of control due to brake failure.

According to him, the accident involved three vehicles – a truck with registration number XA 111 SNN, a Volkswagen Golf 3 with registration number DAL 515 ZX and a Mercedes Benz without a registration number.
