The Kano command of the Federal Road Safety Corps has confirmed that 19 people died and 26 others seriously injured in a crash on the Kano-Zaria highway Thursday night.
Spokesperson of the FRSC in Kano State, Abdullahi Labaran, who said the accident occurred near the Nigerian Law School, Bagauda in Kano, revealed that the accident occurred when two buses on high speed collided.

“The buses went (up) in flames immediately they collided. Most of the passengers in the buses, including those who have died were burnt. For now, we have handed over some of the corpses to family members who could easily identified their relatives while others have been deposited at the mortuary and those injured have been taken to the General Hospital in Kura for medical attention,” he said.
