Three lifeless bodies of occupants in the van that includes Bako Kaura, head of PDP’s informal security arm and another victim identified as Adamu, Kaura’s biological son have been deposited at the mortuary of Hong Federal Medical Centre.
Five other occupants in the van who sustained various degree of injuries, were conveyed in the government house ambulance and another unmarked Hilux van, for treatment in a health facility.
