Daily Sun gathered that the traders, who hailed from Andare, Katenga, Maiyama and one other village, were heading to Ibadan, Oyo State and Lagos State to sell their cows to their respective customers when the accident occurred.

It was gathered that the driver of the truck in which they loaded about 20 cows yesterday, lost control of the vehicle along Maiyama-Koko road, veered off course and it tumbled inside the bush.

A witness, Mallam Garba Maiyama, told newsmen yesterday: “Fifteen of the traders died in the accident and they have been buried in their respective villages immediately because they are Muslims.

“The most unfortunate part of the incident is that a family in one village has about three or five victims. We don’t really know the main cause of the accident for now.”

While contacted, the Police Public Relation Officer in Kebbi State, DSP Danjuma Possi, toldDaily Sun that the incident had not been reported officially.

Also, the Public Relation Officer (PRO), Federal Road Safety Corps, (FRSC), Kebbi State, Ibrahim Kangiwa, could not give details about the incident.
