At least two persons have been reportedly dead on Tuesday evening while four others sustained injuries of various degrees when two vehicles collided on Kano-Gwarzo road.
A spokesman of Kano State Fire Service, Alhaji Saidu Mohammed, of the fire service told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano that the accident occurred at about 5:35pm.
“We received a distress call from one Malam Wada Alhassan at about 5:35pm that there was an accident on Gwarzo Road. On receiving the information, we quickly dispatched our personnel and vehicle to the scene of the incident at about 5:41pm to rescue the victims,” Mohammed said.
He said two vehicles, a Truck, with registration number XF 375 FG and a Golf car with registration number KZR 421 ZT, from opposite direction, had collided.
Mohammed attributed the accident, which involved six persons, to speed limit violation which led to loss of control by the drivers.
He said the fire personnel took the victims to the Murtala Mohammed Specialist Hospital, Kano where the doctor on duty confirmed two dead while the remaining four victims were receiving treatment.
He appealed to motorists to obey traffic regulations so as to stay alive and minimise accidents on the road.
