Seven people were killed in Kano on Sunday after a
pedestrian bridge at Dorayi quarters that was still
under construction collapsed.
The command’s Public Relations Officer, Magaji
Majiya, confirmed the incident in an interview with the
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
Majiya said the incident happened around 4:45 p.m.
when the bridge, which was still under construction,
caved in and collapsed on a car, which was passing
underneath it.
“The workers at the site had warned motorists not to
pass because they were working on the bridge but the
driver of the taxi allegedly ignored the warning. So, the
moment he moved; before he passed, the bridge caved
in and collapsed on the vehicle, which led to the death
of seven persons,’’ the police spokesperson said.
According to him, the vehicle has since been
evacuated from the scene while the corpses have been
deposited at a hospital morgue.
Majiya said the police had also commenced
investigation into the cause of the incident.
