Three suspected smugglers have died in a motor accident in the Babura Local Government area of Jigawa State.
A resident told news reports that the incident occurred on Tuesday when a Honda Accord 2006 model lost control along Babura-Sule Tankarkar road.
He said on reaching Tsalle Village, which is about three Kilometers from Sule Tankarkar Town, the driver lost control as a result of overspeeding.
The spokesman of the Nigerian Security And Civil Defense Corps, NSCDC, CSC Adamu Shehu, confirmed the incident.
He said the driver of the vehicle lost control, hit a tree, and somersaulted, resulting in the death of victims.
Adam said the victims were certified dead by medical doctors at the PHC Center, Sule Tankarkar Town.
The vehicle was overloaded with foodstuffs including bags of flour and cartons of spaghetti suspected to be smuggled.
He, however, warned motorists to abide by the stipulated road traffic rules and regulations to avoid loss of lives and property.
