Four persons lost their lives in different road accidents which occurred at different communities in Bogoro Local Government Area of Bauchi State during Christmas holidays with a bride-to-be injured in one of the accidents.

DAILY POST gathered on Tuesday that one Nenfort, a resident of Jangyar village, who was an Okada rider, lost his life when he was conveying his sister to Gyara in a motorcycle accident on Sunday, 26th December, 2021.

The sister, whose wedding had been fixes for 28th December, broke her leg in the accident. It was further gathered that despite her condition, the wedding still held as scheduled.

A friend of the late Nenfort, James told journalists that he spoke with the deceased on Sunday morning, only to hear later that his friend died in an accident.

โ€œThat Sunday morning I spoke with Nenfort to take me to Lafiya Sara but he reluctantly declined, pleading that he wanted to go to church. I understood with him and let him go.

โ€œI was at home when a friend told me about the accident and I could not stop sorrowing,โ€ James said.

He informed that while the deceased sisterโ€™s wedding was going on they received a sad news that two young persons, Miss Ruth John, a resident of Ndukum and Mr Wulumbu, an indigene of Gambar Lere village, were found dead at Samiya village.

The duo, who was said to have just returned to the state from Lagos, was found dead early morning of Tuesday, with unconfirmed report claiming that they were hit by a vehicle while returning from a wedding ceremony.

Another source who pleaded anonymity informed that a woman also lost her life in a motor accident on Monday at Tundu Wada.
