The Kaduna-Abuja Road has claimed another top government official, just weeks after the country lost the Minister of state for Labour, James Ocholi, his wife and son.
The victim this time is the acting director -general of the National Centre for Women Development in Abuja, Alhaji Abdulmalik Dauda.
His death was confirmed today by Mr Mohammed Aliyu, Protocol Officer to the director-general.
