The Son of Musa Yar’Adua, former Nigerian President, Aminu Yar’Adua is currently in prison for allegedly killing four people in an auto crash in Yola.
According to First Information Report (FIR) tendered in court by police prosecutor, Inspector Zakka Musa, it was alleged that Aminu crushed six people as a result of over speeding while driving along Yola bye pass on 23 June, 2021.
It was learnt that four of the accident victims died, while two others are receiving treatment.
The FIR read; “Those that died in the accident were identified as; Aisha Umar (30), Aisha Mamadu (32), Suleiman Abubakar(2) and Jummai Abubakar (30), while, Rejoice Annu (28) and Hajara Aliyu(27) sustained injuries.”
Relatives of late Aisha Umar, Suleiman Abubakar and Jummai Abubakar have demanded for the sum of N15 million from the defendant as compensation.
Furthermore, the former president’s son was charged to court for allegedly causing death by dangerous driving.
However the 36-year-old Aminu, said to be a student of the American University of Nigeria (AUN), denied committing the offence and described it as untrue.
Following this, the police prosecutor pleaded with the court to adjourn the case to enable him duplicate the case file and forward to the Department of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for legal advice.
Magistrate Jummai Ibrahim granted the request and subsequently ordered that Aminu be remanded in prison before adjourning the matter to 19th August, 2021 for further mentioning.
