At least four police recruits died while 30 others sustained various degrees of injury in an auto accident at Unguwar Rogo roundabout in Sokoto metropolis.
The accident occurred on Monday. Two of the victims died on the spot while the others died at Usmanu Danfodiyo University Teaching Hospital, Sokoto.

Witnesses said yesterday that the accident occurred as a result of reckless driving by the driver of the vehicle conveying the recruits back from the Army shooting range in Bacedi.
