The Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, Zamfara State Command, has confirmed 15 persons dead in a ghastly accident which occurred along Gusau-Tsafe road in the early hours of Sunday.

The sector commander, Amos Thilizer, told the News Agency of Nigeria that the accident was caused by a Dangote cement trailer driver, who lost control and ran into a Toyota hiace, killing all the passengers.

The sector commander further said that three other persons who were in the trailer sustained various degree of injuries and had being taken to General hospital Tsafe for medical care.
