A witness, Sunusi Abdul, confirmed to Premium Times that the incident occurred in Daka-Tsalle town, along the expressway.
“His SUV car had a head-on collision with a Toyota Avensis vehicle,” Mr. Abdul said.
“Fortunately, the deputy governor’s vehicle did not somersault, but the Toyota car was badly damaged and some of its occupants injured”, the source said.
Mr. Abdul, who said the accident occurred around 9:30 am, added that he also narrowly missed hitting Mr. Ali’s car.
He said the deputy governor’s convoy later continued its trip to Kano.
