Governor Al-Makura’s son Runs over 6 Persons in Nasarawa



Nasarawa Governor, Tanko Al-Makura

Khalid Al-Makura, the son of Nasarawa State governor, Tanko Al-Makura has been involved in another hit and run, this time, knocking down about 6 persons in the Mararaba Ankunza area of Lafia, the state capital.

Khalid was returning from a club and was allegedly drunk when the accident occurred, Tribune reports.

Khalid had been involved in the death of a Junior Secondary School 2 student Ovye Amos after the car he was driving knocked the student down.

Khalid was arraigned for manslaughter, but nothing of heard of the case again and he was allowed to go free.

Speaking to Tribune, the traditional chief of the area, Ibrahim Mohammed confirmed the accident, saying three persons sustained serious injuries, but there was no record of death.

Some of the victims were amputated and are receiving treatment at Chida Crescent Hospital, Abuja, Mohammed said, adding that others have minor injuries and are currently receiving treatment in National Hospital, Abuja.

“Some youths wanted to kill the driver, but I insisted and asked the vigilante guards to take him away, which they did before they later hand him over to the Police, while those injured were rushed to specialists Hospital. And the Governor immediately ordered that they should all be taken to Abuja,” Mohammed added.

Speaking to Tribune, the leader of the vigilante group, Isah Danladi said:

We stood our ground to save him before we later realised that he is Governor Al-Makura’s son. In fact, if we were not there nobody knows what the youth could have done, because they were angry and ready for jungle justice as they noticed the driver was drunk.

Khalid, Tribune gathered, has been involved in several hit and run accidents that has claimed four lives in the last three years.

It is said that authorities, the Police and Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), have not taken any action to stop the “trend”.

Tribune said a source disclosed that “Governor Al-Makura has placed Khalid on serious checks and has directed that no vehicle should be allowed to be kept in his custody to prevent further backlash against the first family of Nasarawa State.”

Another source, Tribune says, said that Khalid is presently in hiding to prevent any negative action against him by his father.

Speaking to journalists, Nasarawa State Police Public Relation Officer, John Idrisu Kennedy, said: “I am not to comment on this”.

    HOLD UP! Did I read what I just read, right? This is ridiculous. So because this terrorist is a governor’s son, he goes scot free in a killing rampage? Common Nigerian people. My mom just told me that Muslims do not drink alcohol, so how did he kill all these people drunk? This must be the worst country on earth. SERIOUSLY???? Governor’s son, killing people and justice not done? WOW!!! I always think I’ve heard it all about Nigeria, but it’s like each time I read about my parent’s country of birth, I end up getting knocked over on things that are unbelievable. God please save and heal the victims of this terrorist son of a governor.

    I do not tolerate violence but really someone needs to do something about this. Since his parents and too busy to put a leash on him and will not allow the law of the land do it for them. Before he kills more people, a stop needs to be put this non-sense. This is where voodoo and “village people” need to put their powers to work.

      He is probably a druggie fueling his murderous tendencies with some codeine syrup combo. Jungle justice continues to be the poor man’s justice system in Nigeria because of nonsense like this. You kill 1, 2, 3, 4 people and your father orders you flown to Abuja as if he is judge, jury, and Lady Justice.

    How can one person kill four people and everything is hushed up? So their lives do not matter because their families do not have access to social media?
