Initial investigations suggested that the crash was due to overloading of goods and passengers, potentially compounded by driver fatigue. “Further investigation revealed that 73 people were involved in the crash, with 59 sustaining injuries and, sadly, 4 losing their lives,” Nadabo stated.

The injured were promptly taken to St. Gerard and AP Smart Hospitals in Kaduna for medical attention. Expressing concern about the recurring accidents during the festive season, Nadabo noted the efforts of the FRSC to curb road traffic crashes and save lives.

The FRSC has implemented several initiatives to reduce the high incidence of auto accidents during festive periods, including the establishment of roadside camps at Kakau and Rigachikun for prompt response to crashes, provision of standby ambulances at key locations along the expressway with trained personnel to provide first aid, increased awareness and sensitisation campaigns for road users on general safety practices, and strict enforcement of traffic regulations, including prosecution of drivers caught overloading their vehicles with goods or passengers.

Nadabo commended the state government and the media for the support received in creating awareness for the promotion of road safety. He reiterated the collective responsibility to prioritize safety and collaborate with the FRSC to save lives and property on the roads.
