You know, after the harvest and at seasons like this, people travel to visit loved ones resident in different places; and that was where they were going to. They left Dutsinma, Katsina State, and they had left Jigawa State and were within Bauchi State when their vehicle had a head-on collision with another vehicle. They were 29 in the vehicle and all of them died except the driver, who survived.” He said. However the Bauchi Police Command has not made an official pronouncement on the incident.
