A Toyota Hilux conveying a detachment of vigilantes, accompanying Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri, while enroute Mubi for a campaign engagement, was involved in an accident that killed four people.
The accident occurred around Fadamareke, in Hong Local Government, and Punch reported that it’s been linked to overspeeding while negotiating a dangerous bend.
Bako Kaura, head of PDP’s informal security arm, another victim identified as Adamu, and Kaura’s biological son died in the accident. Their corpse have been deposited at the mortuary in Hong Federal Medical Centre.
Five other occupants in the van who sustained various degree of injuries, were conveyed in the government house ambulance and another unmarked Hilux van, for treatment in a health facility.
Governor Fintiri’s personal physician and head of the government house clinic, Dr. William Teri, who was among the first responders at the crash also conveyed the victims to a hospital for treatment.
Confirming the incident, a source told the publication;
“I took out three lifeless bodies, but there’s a fourth that I think can hardly make it out of coma because of the injury he sustained. There were about nine occupants in the Ramp 2 Hilux van the head of vigilantes for Fintiri/Farauta campaign involved in the accident was traveling in.”
This is coming days after Fintiri narrowly escaped death. A truck had lost control and rammed into his stationary motorcade.
