Son Of Late Former President Yaradua Detained In prison For killing 4 People

The son of late former President Umaro Musa Yar’Adua, Aminu Yar’Adua, has been remanded in prison for the killing of four people in an auto crash in Yola.

36-year-old Aminu is being charged to court for allegedly causing death by dangerous driving on 23 June, 2021.

In the First Information Report (FIR) tendered in court by police prosecutor Insp. Zakka Musa, it was stated that while driving along Yola bye pass on 23 June, 2021 , Aminu crushed six people as a result of over speeding.

The accident claimed the lives of 4 people while the remaining 2 people were receiving treatment at the hospital. The statement from the FIR read;

“Those that died in the accident were identified as; Aisha Umar (30), Aisha Mamadu (32), Suleiman Abubakar(2) and Jummai Abubakar (30), while, Rejoice Annu (28) and Hajara Aliyu(27) sustained injuries.”

Relatives of late Aisha Umar, Suleiman Abubakar and Jummai Abubakar had demanded the sum of N15 million from the defendant as compensation.

However Aminu denied committing the offence and described it as untrue. After Zakka pleaded with the court to adjourn the case to enable him duplicate the case file and forward to the Department of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for legal advice, Magistrate Jummai Ibrahim granted the request and subsequently ordered that Aminu be remanded in prison before adjourning the matter to 19th August, 2021 for further mention.
