The Command’s Spokesman, DSP Dungus Abdulkarim, told newsmen that 10 persons were confirmed dead and seven others injured in an accident involving a Hummer bus and a Sharon bus.

The crash was said to have happened around 10.22 pm on Saturday near Gashaka along the Potiskum-Gombe Road.

The governor described the accident as tragic and unfortunate.

He, however, urged motorists to observe traffic laws, and avoid excessive speeding and overloading.

“Motorists on night journeys and in the rains must drive with extra care for their personal safety, the safety of other road users and passengers,” he said.

Buni prayed for the repose of the souls of the deceased and the quick recovery of other passengers who sustained injuries in the accident.

“ I pray Allah to grant their families the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,” Buni said.
