According to him, the students were travelling to Kano for an excursion when their bus had a head on collusion with a DAF truck.
He said the 22 students and their driver died in the accident, while three others sustained serious injuries.
“Of the 22 students, 12 are male while the remaining 10 are female.
“Two of the injured were taken to Gaya General Hospital, while the remaining one has been referred to a Specialist Hospital in Kano,” he said.
Nasiru Darazo, elder brother to one of the deceased students, Ibrahim Girema, described their death as a ‘colossal loss’.
“These are young men whom we are looking up to as leaders of tomorrow; today, they are no more.
“I have never seen such a tragedy; their remains were all smashed; you would not like to look at their bodies twice,” he told NAN, with emotions covering his face.
