Pedestrian Bridge Collapse Kills Seven In Kano

Seven people were reportedly killed in Kano state in northern part of Nigeria on Sunday when a pedestrian bridge at Dorayi quarters in Kano collapsed. The Kano State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, Mr. Magaji Majiya, confirmed the incident and told journalists that the incident happened around 4:45 p.m. on Sunday when the bridge, which was still under construction, caved in and collapsed on a car, which was passing underneath it.

“The workers at the site had warned motorists not to pass because they were working on the bridge but the driver of the taxi allegedly ignored the warning.

“So, the moment he moved; before he passed, the bridge caved in and collapsed on the vehicle, which led to the death of seven persons,” he added.
