A Nigerian man, his wife, and his four children were burnt to death in a fatal accident along the Nasarawa – Abuja expressway on Saturday, January 9.
The deceased was identified as Prince Nuhu Hamman’Gabdo, is said to be a staff of the Nigeria Communication Commission (NCC) in Abuja and held the traditional title of Galadima of Gashaka Chiefdom.
According to reports, Hamman’Gabdo and his family were returning to Abuja after a visit to his country home in Gashaka LGA and the Mambilla plateau that encompasses Sardauna LGA of Taraba state. Eyes witnesses say his car collided with a Siena vehicle coming in the opposite direction, leading to a huge inferno that engulfed both cars killing all the occupants.
His friends and close associates have taken to social media to express their grief over the sad occurrence.
One of them, Ado Adamu Also who saw him just last week, wrote;
INNALILLAHI WA INNA ILAIHI RAJI’UN
Indeed, the sudden dead of Prince Nuhu Hamman’Gabdo who perished in a ghastly motor accident with his wife and entire children along Nasarawa – Abuja express way to say the least,very depressing.
Exactly one week today we traveled together from Gembu to Gashaka where we spent quality time discussing issues of mutual benefit.
You hosted me with my family together with His Royal Highness in the Palace where we spent the night in royalty……
Allah Akbar!!!today you and your entire family are no more .What a transient world?

I pray, may almighty Allah give the entire deceased souls jannatul firdausi and grant the bereaved families and all of us the fortitude to bear the irreversible lost.
Jaummirawo yafu hinnu hokku is Jannatul Firdaus.”

What a black Saturday in Baruwa/Gashaka, Nguroje and indeed Taraba State. Yerima Nuhu Hammangabdo (Prince of Gashaka), his wife Hadiza SM Nguroje (younger sister to the former Deputy Speaker HoR Hon. Babangida SM Nguroje), their 4 children Ummi, Ayman, Firdausi and Abdullah. They all died earlier on as a result of motor accident along Nasarawa-Abuja Road. May Al-Jannah Firdauss be their final abode. Ameen.
