Governor Al-makura’s son, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, has knocked down about six persons with a car in Mararaba Ankunza area of Lafia, Nasarawa State.
As a result of over speeding, he crashed into six persons which led to the amputation of the legs and hands of three of the victims, who are all receiving treatment in Chida Crescent Hospital, Abuja.
The traditional chief of the area, Ibrahim Mohammed, who confirmed the accident, said there was no record of death.
“Some youths wanted to kill Khalid, but I insisted and asked the vigilante guards to take him away, which they did before they later hand him over to the Police,” he added.
Also speaking, leader of the vigilante group, Isah Danladi, told TribuneOnline that they narrowly escaped the driver, because the youths in the area wanted to kill him and burn the vehicle, but, “We stood our ground to save him before we later realised that he is Governor Al-makura’s son.
“In fact, if we were not there nobody knows what the youth could have done, because they were angry and ready for jungle justice as they noticed the driver was drunk,” he added.
Before the latest accident, Khalid a graduate of Nasarawa State University, Keffi was described by many as serial hit and run driver that led to the death of about four victims in the last three years on different accident.
