A report by The Nation indicates that Aminu Sabo Ringim, the former Jigawa chief judge, has died in a lone accident on Tuesday, May 18, in Shafar village, Ringim local government area of the state.
Legit.ng gathered the public relations officer, Jigawa Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Adamu Shehu, confirmed the incident to newsmen in Dutse.
He said that all the victims were rushed to Ringim General Hospital where the ex-chief judge was confirmed dead.
“The incident happened around 1 p.m. today at Shafar village in Ringim LGA after the deceased, who is driving a Peugeot 206 from Dutse to Ringim, lost control on a sharp bend along Chaichai-Ringim road. The incident involved two persons, the former Chief Judge and his son."
Daily Nigerian also reports that the NSCDC spokesman said the son, who sustained various degrees of injury, is currently receiving medical attention at the hospital.
Hajiya Zainab Baba-Santali, the spokesman of the state’s ministry of justice, confirmed the incident and promised to issue a statement soon.
“The ministry will issue a statement concerning the deceased, immediately the state’s Commissioner for Justice and Attorney-General, Musa Adamu returned from the burial."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that many air passengers, including the Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado-Bayero, escaped death after an aircraft heading to Abuja from Kano developed engine failure, 10 minutes after take-off.
It was reported that the plane with the number VM1645 which was slated for take-off at 1.30 pm had about a 30 minutes delay. The aircraft later took off around 2:00 pm with passengers filled to the brim.
The aircraft was said to have begun to have to swerve around the air until it made a detour for an emergency landing.
The incident was allegedly caused by an engine failure, just as others attributed the incident to a bird strike. The airline is yet to speak on the matter at the time of filing this report.
