FRSC decries constant loss of lives to tanker crashes

…seeks safe motoring environment

 Acting Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Dauda Biu has decried the high rate of crashes leading to incessant loss of lives and properties. This was contained in statement issued by Bisi Kazeem, assistant corps marshal and corps public education officer (CPEO).

He said that the casualty figures of road crashes in Ankpa in Kogi and Argugun in Kebbi states recently indicated that something drastic must be done to reduce road mishaps in the state. In Ankpa, first information report indicates that eight people died on the spot while two people were rescued alive.

Though, he attributed the probable causes of the crashes in both states to speeding and loss of control, he has however ordered immediate dispatch of crash investigators to the two crash sites to ascertain the remote and immediate causes in order to forestall future occurrences.

According to him, senseless killings and unwanted deaths must stop. “The two crashes in Kogi and Kebbi states is saddening and worrisome. This is so because despite all entreaties, advocacy, enlightenment and education plus consultations with the different transport unions, more fatal crashes are happening, “he said.
