Ten security operatives injured as Bauchi Gov’s convoy crashes
At least 10 policemen of the Rapid Response Squad in the Bauchi State governor’s convoy, were on Monday involved in a road accident.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the accident took place while Gov. Bala Mohammed was inspecting a 60- kilometres Burga-Yelwan Duguri road project in Tafawa Balewa Local Government Area (LGA), currently being constructed by the state government.
The road is to connect the people of Tafawa Balewa LGA to Yelwan Duguri and the environs of the Alkaleri Local Government Area of the state.
The NAN Correspondent who witnessed the accident, reports that the Toyota Hilux conveying the police officers veered off the road around 1:30pm and somersaulted twice after losing control as a result of the huge dust that made visibility almost impossible.
However, no life was lost but all the affected police personnel have been taken to the Bununu general hospital in Tafawa Balewa LGA for treatment.
