The accidents happened between January and March 2013.
The FRSC Sector Commander, Godwin Ogagaoghene, said 85 road traffic accidents were recorded during the period.
He said 501 persons were involved in the accidents while 270 had various degrees of injury.
The FRSC boss attributed the crashes to reckless driving and over-speeding, saying most of the victims disregarded traffic rules.
While appealing to motorists to always exercise patience on the highways, he urged them to avoid unnecessary night journeys.
Mr. Ogagaoghene also warned that drivers must conduct thorough checks on their vehicles before putting them on the roads.
“I can assure you that officials of the FRSC would continue to be friendly and fair while maintaining firmness in the discharge of their duties,’’ he added.
