Three Members of the National Youth Service Corps serving in Katsina state, lost their lives in a car accident in Kankara local government area of the state yesterday Sunday August 18th.

According to reports, the corps members were heading towards Funtua to attend a Wedding Mass at a Catholic church when the accident occurred. One of the survivors of the accident said the unfortunate incident happened due to brake failure during a heavy downpour.  The Driver was said to have tried applying brakes but the Bus with Katsina registration number MAN-45-AA and the inscription ” COPPERS FOR CHRIST ” was swept away and it hit a nearby tree.

Confirming the incident, the Corps Public Relations Officer, Alex Obemeata, in a statement released, said

“Sunday Aug. 18, 2019, is a sad day for the NYSC in Katsina State as three Corps Members lost their lives in a ghastly motor accident on their way to a Church programme in Funtua. The Corps Members numbering 12, were in one bus belonging to the National Association of Catholic Corps Members, Katsina. Three of them died on the spot”
