In another series of death due to reckless driving, a truck belonging to Dangote Group Plc, over the weekend has crushed Mr. Mukhtar Abdulkarim, a Second Republic Senator, to death.
Mr. Abdulkarim, along with his brother and driver, were said to be traveling between Kano and Zamfara states on Friday when the truck rammed into his car, killing him instantly; while his brother, Mr. Buhari Abdulkarim, an architect, and his driver were said to be receiving medical attention at Uthman Dan Fodio University Teaching Hospital (UDUTH), Sokoto, after sustaining serious injury.
The late senator, an indigene of Talata Mafara, was born in Zurmi, Zamfara State. He was a civil servant, politician, educator, and active culture enthusiast. He was also a poet and novelist.
