The eyewitness said, “I don’t know whether it’s a tyre that burst but I saw the accident. The people are at the back, they sustained wounds. The other person sustained a head wound so I don’t know if he would be able to survive.

“Some of the senior officers followed them to Gwagwalada. That’s what happened.”
