Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa State, was involved in a ghastly accident as a result of over speeding while en route Mubi for a campaign engagement.

Four persons of his convoy reportedly died involving a Toyota Hilux conveying a detachment of vigilante members accompanying the Governor.

The accident occurred around Fadamareke, in Hong Local Government, while the vehicle, a RAMP 2 Toyota Hilux van used by Head of Fintiri’s vigilante was negotiating a dangerous bend.

Three lifeless bodies of occupants in the van including Bako Kaura, head of PDP’s informal security arm and another victim identified as Adamu, Kaura’s biological son have been deposited at the mortuary of Hong Federal Medical Centre.

Five other occupants in the van who sustained various degree of injuries, were conveyed in the government house ambulance and another unmarked Hilux van, for treatment in a health facility.

Governor Fintiri’s personal physician and head of the government house clinic, Dr. William Teri, who was among the first responders at the crash also conveyed the victims to a hospital for treatment.

A source at the scene of the accident who helped with the evacuation and rescue effort, however, said “I took out three lifeless bodies, but there’s a fourth that I think can hardly make it out of coma because of the injury he sustained. There were about nine occupants in the Ramp 2 Hilux van the head of vigilantes for Fintiri/Farauta campaign involved in the accident was traveling in.”

NEWSTODAYNG recalled that Governor Fintiri, who also helped to coordinate rescue activities was disturbed by tragic death involving his convoy.

About a week ago, Governor Fintiri narrowly escaped death by the whispers when a truck which lost control almost rammed into his stationary motorcade.

It happened around the high brow, Dougirei Hilltop Agga Mosque, where the governor had gone to attend a wedding engagement.

Unfortunately, two vehicles on his convoy, were unlucky as the truck crushed into them.
