One Dead As Lawmker's Car Crashes


It was a sad weekend for Mr. Mzenda Iho, a lawmaker representing Kastina  Ala/Logo/Ukum Federal Constituency at the lower legislative chamber of the National  Assembly, when a car said to be convening his supporters to a political event was  involved in a ghastly accident, leaving one person dead and two others severely  wounded.

An eye witness, Tavershima Adoor, told P.M.NEWS that the car, a brown coloured  Toyota Starlet, was speeding terribly and in the process, lost control and  somersaulted three times, pushing off an okada rider out of the road.

One person died on the spot, while another had his face covered with blood and the  other who was helped out of the car by sympathisers, was also quickly rushed to the  Katsina-Ala General Hospital for treatment.

Adoor, who said the victims were in their late 20s, attributed the accident to  excessive consumption of alcohol by the driver.

Efforts to get the lawmaker for his comment on the incident proved abortive as his  mobile phone was out of service area.
