The governor expressed his condolences in a statement issued in Katsina on Saturday by Malam Ibrahim Kaula, his Chief Press Secretary (CPS).

“The construction work required diversion of traffic, with contractors placing heavy machinery close to the area, inadvertently contributing to the unfortunate incident.

“Regrettably, seven lives, including two children and the bus driver, were lost at the scene of the accident,” he said.

Radda expresses deep sympathy and stands in solidarity with the bereaved families and the people of the state during this difficult time.

On behalf of the entire people of the state, I pray to Allah SWT, seeking solace for the departed souls, and beg the Almighty to grant them Jannatul Firdaus.

“The state government remains committed to ensuring the safety of its citizens and will work diligently to prevent such tragic incidents in the future,” Radda assured.

The governor further urged the people of the state to come together and support one another during these trying times.
