Governor Bello Mohammed (Matawallen Maradun) has suspended his campaign rallies in Bukkuyum Local Government Area to mourn the passing away of eight persons involved in ghastly accident along Gummi/Bukkuyum last night.
The accident occured after Maghrib prayer when three cars were involved in a head-on collution killing six people reportedly involving a newly married couple.
Five of the corpses were given a befitting Islamic prayer for the dead after Jummaat prayer in Bukkuyum this afternoon where His Excellency and his entourage were in attendance.
Governor Matawalle was earlier billed to flag off his Campaign rallies in Bukkuyum after Friday Prayers, but decided to suspend the rally in honour of the departed souls of the land.
Instead, he proceeded to visit the Emir Alhaji Mohammad Usman in his Palace and payed his condolence for the families and people of Bukkuyum in general. He said the incident was designed by the Almighty Allah in His own wisdom, and the wisdom of Allah is always the best choice for the believers.
Before he departed the Palace, Governor Matawalle assigned the former Deputy Governor in the State, Malam Ibrahim Wakkala Liman to deliver a special prayer for the deceassed.
