The eldest son of the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa'ad Abubkar III, was allegedly involved in an ghastly car accident.
Amir was said to be driving at about 12 noon within Sokoto Airport Road, in an area called Bado, when the accident happened.
According to Sahara Reporters, Amir was in the vehicle with Khalifa Maccido, son of Aliyu Macciddo, and a girl he allegedly imported from Kaduna to have fun with when the incident took place.
It was gathered that the Sultan's son was taken to the Usman Danfodio Teaching Hospital, where he has been unconscious.
Also witnesses said while the occupants of the vehicle were being taken to the hospital, officials of the Sultanate Council were allegedly seen removing the Sultanate council plate number from the car so as not to expose the Sultanate Council.
When contacted, Faruku Ladan Ddaji, secretary of the sultanate said he could not confirm the incident as he was out of town.
The presidency had said that Yusuf suffered a head injury and multiple fractures in a power bike accident in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on Tuesday, December 26, night.
