A 200-level student of Public Administration of the Bauchi State University, Gadau and two other persons, died Tuesday in a crash on the Bauchi-Maiduguri highway.
The student, Ibrahim Mohammed Karamba and two others were on a motorcycle when they had a head-on collision with an18-seater bus.
The Dean, Faculty of Social and Management Sciences, Dr Mahmoud Ibrahim, yesterday said the accident occurred at Tirwun Kajitu village about four kilometers from the Bauchi campus of the university.
“I was sitting in the office when some students’ leaders, a security and some other staff came and informed me that, there was an accident involving our students.
“We quickly rushed to the place and evacuated them to Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital (ATBUTH), Bauchi where they were certified dead.
“We later discovered that, the other two were not our students, they only gave the student a ride on their motorcycle and they had the accident on their way into the town,” he said
