Gov. Shettima’s Convoy Involved In Accident, Aide Dies

The convoy of Kashim Shettima, governor of Borno state, was involved in a road crash on Friday, leading to the death of his senior special assistant on protocol identified as Farouk Farouk.

A driver, who also sustained injuries in the accident, has reportedly been taken to a hospital.

The tragic incident occurred along the Abuja Kaduna expressway.

It is not clear if Shettima was on his way to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari who returned to the country after a 49-day vacation in London, when the accident happened.

Shettima was not among the governors who were with Buhari at the presidential villa in Abuja.
