Women Leaders, Others Die In Accident, FRSC Finds Five Guns In Crashed Vehicle

Tragedy struck in Kaduna on Sunday as 15 persons, including six national women leaders of the Evangelical Reformed Church of Christ, died in an auto accident in the state.

The accidents occurred at two different spots.

The Federal Road Safety Corps’ Sector Head of Operations, Kaduna, Mr. Salish Umar Galadunci, confirmed the incidents.

He, however, could not say if the women leaders were part of the accident which occurred along Kajuru Junction, Maraba Rido Kachia Road, in Chikun Local Government Area of the state.

A source disclosed that five high-ranking women lost their lives along with the driver of the bus conveying them from Kebbi State after attending the inauguration of the church in the state.

In his account, the source said the wife of a former ERCC Secretary General and Vice Chairman, Sanga LGA in Kaduna State, Mrs. lydia Nuhu Idzi, was among the women that died.

Meanwhile, FRSC's Galadunci said in another rescue operation carried out by men of the sector command, another accident which claimed three lives, occurred along the Mazuga Village, 10 kilometres away from Kachia-Kafanchan Road on Saturday.

The FRSC official said items recovered from one of the vehicles included five locally-made AK47 rifles and a magazine.

“The recovered arms were handed over to the DPO, Kachia Division for further investigation.”
