  • TRAGEDY!!! Speeding Nigerian Army Gun Truck Crushes Two People To Death


    A military truck driving at a high speed crushed a taxi tricycle
    popularly called 'Keke-Napep', on Sunday,  killing two passangers in Damaturu, the capital of Yobe state.

    Witnesses said the armored gun truck driver did not obey the red traffic light when the tricycle rider was crossing the highway.

    It was gathered that one of the two passangers killed was Hussaina Baffa-Bello, 19-year-old female student of Federal Polytechnic, Damaturu.


    Premium Times' report citing multiple residents said since the installation of the traffic lights in Damaturu by the government last year, most military and police vehicles usually disobey them.

    “The army truck did not stop at the traffic light-controlled junction while the Keke-Napep rider who had a right of way was crossing, and that was how the truck ran over them,” said a witness who identified himself as Muhammed.

    “Even if they met other civilian vehicle waiting and obeying the traffic light, they would be blaring their horns and causing confusion,” said Bashir Sani, a civil servant.


    Amidst rising anger over the sad incident, the state governor visited the scene of the accident and went to condole the bereaved families of the victims.

    Though the military has not issued any statement to that effect, a statement issued by the governor’s spokesman, Abdullah Bego, indicated that top officers of the military command in Damaturu had gone to commiserate with the families of the victims.

    Mr. Bego said, “Governor Mai Mala Buni has been briefed about an incident in Damaturu yesterday in which a KEKE NAPEP rider with passengers was crushed by a military vehicle in an accident which claimed the lives of two persons.”

    “Already, the Brigade Commander 27 Task Force Brigade, the Commanding Officer 233 Tank Battalion and officials of the State Government have visited and commiserated with the families of the victims,” the statement said.

    “His Excellency has learned that one of the victims, Hussaina Baffa Bello was a pre-ND student of the Federal polytechnic Damaturu while the other fatality was a toddler.

    “Governor Buni’s thoughts, sympathies, and prayers are with the families of those who lost their lives and with the victims who sustained injuries.
