doctor and friend die

This is sad! Two close friends were on Saturday, burnt to death in a ghastly accident along Katsina-Dutsinma road.

The painful accident which occurred at about 3pm on Saturday afternoon, December 5, when their Toyota Camry crashed and burst into flames claimed the lives of a newly graduated medical doctor and his friend.

Two of the friends have been identified as Dr. Sadiq Yahaya Zakka, a medical doctor who recently graduated from a university in China and was preparing for his mandatory National Youth Service, and his friend, Auwal Shehu Danfaranshi.

 A friend of the victims, Serdeeq said one of the occupants of the vehicle identified as Fahad survived and is currently receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital. 

Late Dr. Zakka’s cousin, Balarabe Danlami, who confirmed the incident said he was travelling with his friends to Dutsinma to visit his sister when the accident happened.

 Auwal Shehu Danfaranshi was buried on Sunday morning, December 6,  according to Islamic rites.

May their souls rest in Peace, Amen.
