One of the sons of a former Nigerian president, Musa Yar’Adua, has been remanded in prison.

Aminu Yar’Adua, who is 36 years old was remanded in prison on Thursday, August 5, by a magistrate court in Yola, Adamawa State.

The student of the American University of Nigeria (AUN) Yola, was remanded after his vehicle was involved in an auto crash that killed about four persons.

A police First Information Report (FIR) tendered at the court by the prosecutor, Inspector Zakka Musa, revealed that Aminu’s car hit six persons along the Yola bye-pass on Wednesday, June 23.

The FIR stated: ”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.”

Inspector Musa told the magistrate, Jummai Ibrahim, that families of late Aisha Umar, Suleiman Abubakar, and Jummai Abubakar had demanded the sum of N15 million from Aminu as compensation.

Ibrahim, upon the prayer of the prosecutor, adjourned the case till Thursday, August 19, when the defendant denied committing the said offence.

The judge, therefore, ordered the late president’s son to be remanded in the prison till the next scheduled hearing.
