Ahmadu Fintiri, Adamawa State governor.

Four persons have been confirmed dead on Thursday in an auto crash involving the convoy of Adamawa State governor, Ahmadu Fintiri.

The deceased persons, according to Punch Newspapers, are vigilante detachment accompanying Mr Fintiri to a political campaign in Mubi area of the state in a Toyota Hilux.

The cause of the accident is linked to over speeding while negotiating a dangerous bend around Fadamareke, in Hong Local Government.

While the lifeless bodies have been deposited at the mortuary of Hong Federal Medical Centre, about five others who sustained various injuries were conveyed in the government house ambulance and another unmarked Hilux van, for treatment in a health facility.

The governor, who narrowly escaped death by the whispers when a truck which lost control almost rammed into his stationary motorcade last week, assisted in the rescue operation.
