Col. Ahmed Sabo, who paid the visit on behalf of the Brigade Commander of the 23 Armour Brigade Yola, Col. Aba Popoola, paid the military’s condolences.

“We heard of the accident we felt bad about that because some human lives were lost. We have decided to identify with the bereaved families during their trial period,” he said.

Sabo assured people in the forces’ commitment to end the ongoing Boko Haram terror in the area.

Adamawa is one of three states under emergency rule owing to the six-year old insurgency in the north east.

The others are Borno and Yobe.
