Fintiri again cheats death loses four persons in convoy accident
By Odunayo Odeja
The governor of Adamawa state, Ahmadu Fintiri, is counting his losses as no few than four persons died in a ghastly accident involving his convoy.
The crash involved a RAMP 2 Toyota Hilux van used by the Head of Fintiri’s vigilante en route to Mubi for a campaign engagement.
According to the report, the accident around Fadamareke in Hong Local Government was linked to alleged overspeeding while negotiating a dangerous bend.
Three lifeless bodies of occupants in the van, including Bako Kaura, head of PDP’s informal security arm, and another victim identified as Adamu, Kaura’s biological son, have been deposited at the mortuary of Hong Federal Medical Centre.

Five other occupants in the van who sustained various injuries were conveyed in the government house ambulance, while another unmarked Hilux van was treated in a health facility.
Governor Fintiri’s 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.
Eyewitnesses at the scene of the accident, who helped with the evacuation and rescue effort, said, “I took out three lifeless bodies, but there’s a fourth that I think can hardly make it out of the coma because of the injury he sustained.
Governor Fintiri, who also helped to coordinate rescue activities, was disturbed by tragic death involving his convoy.
Only last week, Governor Fintiri narrowly escaped death by the whispers when a truck that lost control almost rammed into his stationary motorcade. Unfortunately, two vehicles in his convoy were not so lucky as the truck crushed into them.
The incident occurred around the high-brow Dougirei Hilltop Agga Mosque, where the governor had gone to attend a wedding engagement.
Two policemen who sustained fatal injuries from the crash were rushed to the intensive care unit of the state specialist hospital.
