Three APC members from Kano State died in an auto crash in Zaria on their way to Abuja on Saturday morning.
The deceased include a councilor representing Diso ward in Gwale Local Government Area of Kano State, Abdulwahab Inuwa, and two of his friends, Abdullahi Idris and Abubakar Diso.
They reportedly set out early on Saturday to join other APC members at the convention in Abuja.
An eyewitness, Murtala Lawan, told PREMIUM IMES that the Honda CRV conveying the deceased somersaulted at Amaryawa village, few kilometres from Zaria. He said they were trying to rescue the deceased when the car burst into flames.
Mr. Lawan said they watched the three deceased burn as they could not put out the fire.
A younger brother of the deceased councilor, Bello Inuwa, told journalists in Kano that the family received the sad news from a good Samaritan who phoned the family.
He explained that his brother just came back from Islamic Umrah in Saudi Arabia six days ago.
The funeral prayer for the deceased was conducted by the Chief Imam of Kano, Sani Zaharaddeen, at Kano Central Mosque around 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.
