The Kano State Fire Service has confirmed that two people died while three others sustained injuries when a vehicle and tricycle had a head-on collision at Hotoro area of the state.

Alhaji Saidu Mohammed, spokesman for the fire service told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano that the accident occurred at about 01:40 p.m on Wednesday at Hotoro, Maiduguri road in Taurani Local Government Area, Kano.

“We received a distress call from one Malam Aliyu Isa at about 1:40 p.m that there was an accident on Maiduguri Road.

“On receiving the information, we quickly dispatched our personnel and vehicle to the scene of the incident at about 01:57 p.m to rescue the victims,” Mohammed said.

He said that the vehicles, Toyota Corolla, with registration number AGL 753 FE and a tricycle with registration number BGM 514 BM were involved in a head-on collision at the scene of the accident.
