The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) on Monday said six primary school teachers died in a road accident on Dutsinma- Katsina road.
Alhaji Abdu Bagadawa, the FRSC Sector Commander, told NAN that the accident victims were from Danmusa local government area of Katsina state.
He stated that the accident, which involved 12 passengers, claimed the lives of six on the spot.
The sector commander said five people sustained various degrees of injuries and were rushed to Dutsinma General Hospital.
He said the other passenger was taken to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, Kano, for treatment.
Bagadawa stated that the incident, which involved a Sharon mini-bus with registration number, XA241KTN, was caused by speeding.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that the teachers were on their way to Katsina to withdraw their salaries when the accident occurred.
It was observed that lack of financial institutions at most of the state local government councils forces people to the state capital to have access to banks and make transactions.
KATSINA POST wishes to condoled the family of the deceased and pray for them to rest in eternal peace.
