Two persons have died and eight others seriously injured in a road traffic crash along the Kaduna-Abuja highway.
Security agencies conducting operations on the route say the sad incident which occurred near Olam Farms involved four vehicles, and was again caused by speeding and commuters driving against traffic.
Security agencies have evacuated the fatalities, giving emergency attention to the eight others injured, some of whom were unconscious.
They’ve been rushed to hospital, and the site cleared for normal flow of traffic.
Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai has expressed shock at the repeated traffic violations, and made a renewed call to drivers plying the highway to desist from the deadly practice of driving against the flow of traffic.
He further tasks security agencies to vigorously enforce its prohibition by the Kaduna State Government.
