The Unit Commandant, Federal Road Safety Corp, Zaria Command, Abubakar Tatah Murabus, on Tuesday, confirmed that 11 persons died in a road accident along the Zaria-Kaduna highway on Saturday afternoon.

While confirming the number of deaths to newsmen, Abubakar noted that the dead persons have been moved to a morgue.

He explained that the accident occurred when a Toyota Carina car, with registration number KTL 251QG, lost control around Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic, Zaria, and somersaulted after hitting the median barrier.

“The accident occurred on Saturday afternoon around 2 pm along Tariyar Sarki near Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic, Zaria,” he said.

He said the five-seater car travelling from Kaduna to Bakori in Katsina State, was loaded with 11 persons.

“This is why we warn drivers to desist from the habit of overloading passengers.
