Three persons were feared dead and four others sustained various degrees of injuries in a fatal road crash off a military checkpoint in Ngelzarma town in Fune Local Government Area, Yobe state. The fatal road crash which occurred at about 3pm on Tuesday involved a Golf Wagon and a trailer which led to the death of the three occupants of the golf car including the driver.
The two vehicles had a head-on collision with some eyewitness blaming the golf car driver of approaching the trailer head-on and crushed it, leading to the death of the three passengers with four other sustaining injuries. The injured passengers were evacuated and taken to the general hospital Damagun including a woman and her baby whose husband is among the dead.
The trailer and the golf car were travelling on different directions. While one was from Kano, the other was going to Maiduguri, Borno state.
In other news, An Osogbo Chief Magistrates’ Court, on Tuesday, ordered the remand of a 29- year-old Rasaq Iyanda, for allegedly stealing a 13-year-old girl’s pant. The prosecutor, ASP Idoko James, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on Feb.6, at about 2:00p.m. at Dalegun compound, Osogbo, NAN reports.
James said the defendant removed the pant of the minor, who was sleeping at the corridor at her parent’s house. He said the complainant, father of the girl, heard his daughter complaining of her pant “missing from her body’’ while she was asleep. The prosecutor said it took the tireless effort of the police detectives to track the defendant. He said the offence contravened Section 360 of the Criminal Code Cap 34 Vol.11, Laws of Osun,2003. The defendant pleaded not guilty to the count charge.
The defence counsel, Mr Olatunbosun Oladipupo, prayed the court to grant his client bail in the most liberal terms. The magistrate, however, refused the oral bail application, ordered the remand of the defendant and adjourned the case until March 12 for hearing of the bail application.
