Details of the incident are sketchy but it was gathered that a driver lost his life in the accident as the governor was returning to Gombe from Bauchi.

The Director-General of Media and Information, Gombe State, Samaila Uba Misilli was said to be in the vehicle with other journalists who accompanied the Governor to Bauchi for the meeting when the incident happened.

When contacted, the Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, Bauchi State, Yusuf Abdullahi, who confirmed the crash said he could not give full details of the crash because it happened in Gombe State territory.

The RRS 3 vehicle which was trying to overtake the vehicle in its front skidded off the road and somersaulted because of the dust on the road which is undergoing construction.
