Gombe traditional title holder loses 6 family members in road crash

No fewer than six family members of the Maidalan Gombe, Ahmad Shehu, have reportedly died in a road crash.

The deceased passed on in an accident along Azare-Gombe Road on Sunday.

Conveying Governor Muhammadu Yahaya’s condolence in a Press statement on Monday, Director-General Press Affairs, Ismaila Misilli, said the entire Gombe community is deeply affected by the sad event.

Yahaya, who attended the funeral prayers alongside the Emir of Gombe, Abubakar Shehu-Abubakar III and hundreds of other sympathisers, noted that the loss of family members in such a tragic manner is quite devastating.

The statement reads in part, “Our heartfelt condolences to Maidalan Gombe and the entire bereaved family members during this incredibly difficult time. The loss of six family members in such a tragic road accident is not only a profound loss to your family but it also deeply affects the entire Gombe people.

“Words cannot adequately express the sorrow felt for the immense grief you and your loved ones are experiencing. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers as you pass through this heartbreaking time.”
