Aminu, the son of late former President Musa Yar’Adua, on Thursday, was remanded in prison for allegedly killing four people in an auto crash in Yola, the Adamawa State capital.

36-year-old Aminu Yar’Adua who is a student of the American University of  Nigeria (AUN) Yola, was charged to court for allegedly causing death by dangerous driving on June 23, 2021.

According to the Police First Information Report (FIR) tendered in court by the prosecutor, Inspector Zakka Musa, the accused, while driving along the Yola bye-pass on 23 June 2021, crushed six people as a result of overspeeding.

It was gathered that four of the victims were killed, while two others were injured in the accident. All the victims hailed from Sabon Pegi, Yola South Local Government Area.

”Those that died in the accident were identified as; Aisha Umar (30), Aisha Mamadu (32), Suleiman Abubakar(2) and Jummai Abubakar (30), while, Rejoice Annu (28) and Hajara Aliyu(27) sustained injuries,” the FIR as seen by the News Agency of Nigeria read.

The prosecuting officer told the court that the relatives of late Aisha Umar, Suleiman Abubakar, and Jummai Abubakar had demanded the sum of N15 million from the defendant as compensation.

However, when the FIR was read to Musa Yar’Adua as prayed by the prosecutor, he denied committing the offence, describing the allegation as untrue.

At that point, the prosecutor pleaded with the court to adjourn the matter to enable him to duplicate the case file and forward it to the Department of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for legal advice.

The Magistrate, Jummai Ibrahim granted the prosecution’s request and adjourned the matter to 19th August 2021, for further mention.

Ibrahim ordered that the ex-president’s son be remanded in prison custody until then.
