Borno commissioner loses three brothers in a road accident



A ghastly accident in Borno has caused the loss of five persons.

Three of them are siblings of Engr. Mustapha Gubio, the state's commissioner of reconstruction, resettlement and rehabilitation.

The accident occurred on Monday along Maiduguri - Gubio Road.

'The three brothers were coming from Gubio and had a head to head accident with a Golf (vehicle) which had a driver and a woman. They all lost their lives,' says a source familiar with the incident.

Their burial has been scheduled to take place tomorrow Tuesday by 10:00 am at the commissioner's residence in Damboa Road, Maiduguri.

May their souls rest in perfect peace, ameen!![enter image description
