The convoy of Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusuf Buratai, has killed a motorcycle rider. This incident happened on Monday in Katsina State. The late motorcycle rider was a 75-year-old man named Alh Salisu Ibrahim of Filin Samji, Katsina.
Reportedly, the victim, who was sharing wedding invitations at the time of the accident, died on the spot. We gathered that the accident occurred around Mani House Junction within the Katsina metropolis. Sources claim that the convoy abandoned the corpse of the deceased on the road and drove away.
However, the Director, Army Public Relations, Col Sagir Musa, has released a statement on the incident. Col. Sagir Musa stated that the incident occurred when the vehicles went to refuel. The Brigade commander was to be picked up later.
Furthermore, he stated that already, a delegation of the Nigerian Army-led by the Brigade commander has visited the family. Their visit was to commiserate with them. Likewise, they promised to be fully involved in the burial.
In addition, the Chief of Army Staff, Yusuf Buratai was at the Forward Operating Base, Daura, hometown of President Muhammadu Buhari. This was part of his efforts to combat banditry and ensure lasting peace and security in the state. And the North-West region, too.
