The Cable is reporting that the convoy of Borno state governor Kashim Shettima was involved in a road crash on Friday, March 10. According to the report, the crash led to the death of Shettima’s senior special assistant on protocol Farouk Farouk. The accident occurred along the Abuja Kaduna expressway, a source said. A driver, who sustained injuries in the accident, has reportedly been taken to the hospital.
It could be immediately confirmed the governor was on his way to welcome the president who returned to the country after around 49 days on vacation in London, United Kingdom. Isa Gusau, spokesman of the governor, could not be reached for comments as his mobile telephone was out of reach. Shettima was not among the governors who were with Buhari at the presidential villa in Abuja.
