Mr. Sadiq, a Deputy Superintended of Police (DSP), added that the accident occurred when a Peugeot car from Katsina and a Honda Civic car coming from Kano had a head-on collision.
He added that five persons died on the spot, while two infants later died and four others sustained various degrees of injuries.
“They (those who sustained injuries) were rushed to the Katsina General Hospital for medical treatment,” the PPRO said.
Mr. Sadiq, who said the police were investigating the cause of the accident, advised motorists to always obey traffic rules and regulations to reduce road accidents.
