Niger: Three Severely Injured As Truck Crashes Into Mosque

Three persons including a child were severely injured after a truck rammed into a mosque in Suleja, a town in Niger State, in the early hours of Tuesday.

According to an eyewitness, Usman Haruna, who spoke to our correspondent on the phone, the accident occurred when a majority of the worshipers who converged for the early morning prayers had dispersed.

“The accident occurred around 6 am when many people had left the mosque after the morning prayers and only a few were left to complete their supplications when the truck rammed into a section of the mosque.

“The truck fell when the driver tried to turn on a narrow road very close to the mosque", the source shared.

He said worshippers trapped in the rumbles included women and a child, adding that the trailer fell on the back section of the mosque where women and children pray.

“Three people, including a child, were trapped in the rubble but were later rescued and taken to the general hospital in Suleja for treatment.”
