“The name of the driver is Moses Kefas, and there were four people in the car, three males and one female.

“Among the deceased were two males and a female, with one male injured. I was made to understand that they are residents of Rafin Zurfi area of Bauchi metropolis.

“From the information we got, they were travelling out of Bauchi for a promotion activity when the unfortunate incident occurred,” the commander said.

The FRSC boss further explained that the deceased and the injured were taken to the Darazo General Hospital for medical attention and confirmation.

He advised all road users to be conscious of traffic rules and regulations to avoid crashes that would lead to the loss of lives.
