Eid-el-Fitr: 10 road crashes, 10 dead in Ogun – FRSC

The Ogun State Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, said 10 persons died in 10 road crashes during the Eid-el-Fitri Special Patrol in the state.

Sector Commander of FRSC in Ogun, Anthony Uga, told newsmen on Friday in Ota that 41 other persons sustained varying degrees of injuries from the crashes.

Uga said the 10 people who died comprised eight males and two females while the 41 injured were 22 males, 15 females and four male children.

The sector commander said they were able to stem cases of accidents to the minimum level through the special patrol operation, which began on April 8.

“Most of the road crashes recorded during the Eld-el-Fitri celebration were caused by excessive speed and tyre bursts.

“We are appealing to motorists to reduce their speed, as most of the accidents could have been avoidable if the drivers used good tyres and adhered strictly to the average speed limit,” he said.

Uga implored both commercial and private vehicles to install speed limit devices and refrain from using expired tyres to minimise road crashes to the barest level in the state.
