Two road crashes occurred during the Eater break in Niger State.
The Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, said on Tuesday that 12 persons sustained injuries in two different road crashes during the Easter holidays in Niger State.
The FRSC Sector Commander in charge of Ondo State, Mary Wakawa, who was deployed to Niger for the Easter operation, said that the commission recorded only two road traffic crashes during the Easter celebration in Niger.
Ms. Wakawa made the disclosure in Minna at the end of her five-day duty tour, saying that no life was lost during festive period in the state.
“Two road traffic crashes were recorded with no death in the course of Easter celebration in Niger State.”
She said the first accident involved an Opel car in Minna with four persons sustaining various degrees of injuries, while the second one involved a bus along the Minna-Suleja road with eight persons sustaining injury with no death recorded.
Ms. Wakawa said that her five-day working visit to the Niger State Command was intended to give a new direction and dimension in the FRSC’s operations nationwide, noting that other sector commanders were also posted outside their states to oversee the operations.
She commended officers and men of the Niger State Command for working hard to reduce road accidents to the barest minimum during the Easter break, urging motorists to always respect traffic rules.
