According to reports reaching Oyogist.com, the Late President YarAdua’s son has been remanded in prison for the killing of 4 people.
Aminu Yar’Adua, 36, was remanded by a Magistrate’s Court in Yola on Thursday, in prison for allegedly killing four people in an auto crash in Yola, Adamawa State.
Yar’Adua, a student of the American University of Nigeria, Yola, was charged to court for allegedly causing death by dangerous driving on 23 June, 2021.
In the First Information Report (FIR) tendered in court by police prosecutor Insp. Zakka Musa, it was alleged that while driving along Yola bye pass on 23 June, 2021 , Aminu crushed six people as a result of over speeding.
The accident victims are from Sabon Pegi, Yola South Local Government Area, and it was learnt that while 4 died, two others are receiving treatment.

“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.
” Relatives of late Aisha Umar, Suleiman Abubakar and Jummai Abubakar had demanded the sum of N15 million from the defendant as compensation.
But, when the FIR was read to the defendant 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 duplicate the case file and forward same to the Department of Public Prosecutions for legal advice.
The Magistrate, Jummai Ibrahim, granted the prosecution’s request and adjourned the matter to 19th August, 2021, for further mention, and ordered that the ex-president’s son be remanded in prison custody until then.
