Six members of the Women Wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria (WOWICAN) in Taraba state have lost their lives in an auto crash that occurred on Saturday.

The victims were said to be returning from the women’s wing CAN conference which took place in Gembu, Sardauna LGA of Taraba, and ended on Saturday.

Reacting to the incident, Agbu Kefas, governor of Taraba, condoled with the families of the victims.

In a statement by Emmanuel Bello, his special adviser on media and digital communications, Kefas described the accident as “a black Sunday” in the state.


The governor assured that his administration is committed to constructing safer roads, especially in areas that pose great threats to life.

“While praying for the repose of their souls, I want to pledge my administration’s continuous commitment to safer roads, especially within areas that pose great threats to life,” the statement reads.

“I’ve already directed Local Government Chairmen to maintain existing roads with proper traffic controls, signages, and basic repairs.


“With this said development, we’ll work to minimise the sad occurrences of road mishaps occasioned by bad roads in the state.”

The governor also condoled with the CAN leadership, WOWICAN, and the entire Christian community in the state and the country.
