He said the truck which was loaded with cosmetics was coming from Kano and headed for Lagos while the Mazda that was loaded with eight passengers was headed for Minna.

Dagwa used the opportunity to advise motorists to obey all highway road rules and always drive within speed limits.

He said the accident was caused by over speeding.

He added, “We will continue to sustain our aggressive patrols across all major highways to ensure that road users adhere strictly to traffic rules and regulations to avoid road accidents during and after the ongoing Sallah celebration across the state,”
