35 die in 49 road crashes in Ogun in June- FRSC



The Ogun Command of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) says 35 persons died in 49 road crashes in Ogun between June 1 and June 27.

Mr Anthony Uga, FRSC Sector Commander in Ogun, gave the figure in an interview with our reporter on Tuesday in Ota, Ogun.

Uga also said that 146 persons sustained various degrees of injuries in the road crashes.

The sector commander blamed most of the accidents on excessive speed, reckless driving, wrongful overtaking, night travelings among others.

He implored motorists to always obey traffic rules and regulations to minimise unnecessary loss of lives on the highways.

“The FRSC want to enjoin motorists to reduce their speeds and also install speed limit device on their vehicles to reduce fatality rates in case of accidents.

“In addition, they should refrain from dangerous driving and wrongful overtaking to stem road crashes,” he said.

The sector commander reiterated the corps’ commitment to collaborate with other sister agencies to make the roads safer for commuters.
