He was said to have crushed to motorcyclist to death in the process and caused the fire which razed the police station and vehicles.
Abeh confirmed the figure to newsmen after visiting the scene on Sunday.
He said, “The incident was quite unfortunate but we have to give glory to God because the level of lives involved is what we should appreciate God for.
“The inferno would have consumed a lot of lives, most especially as Danmagaji usually has heavy traffic, and this police station is a place where people always visit.
“Today, we would have been telling a different story. However everything in the station have been completely burnt down, as you can see the structure, nothing is left apart from the wall.”
