The Federal Road Safety Command (FRSC) in Osun has said 12 persons lost their lives in various road accidents in the state in April.

The state’s Sector Commander, Mr Anthony Oko, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Osogbo.

He said that 17 road accidents occurred, involving 114 persons within the same period.

“The accidents claimed the lives of seven males and five females, due to the reckless attitude of the drivers involved.

“Most of these accidents were caused by speeding, wrongful overtaking, drinking while driving, drug overdose and disobedience to road traffic rules and regulations,” he said.

The sector commander also said that officials of the command educated 156 persons on road traffic regulations as well as issuing of licence to some drivers.

Oko cautioned drivers and other road users to keep to the rules and regulations, especially on highways, to reduce carnage on the roads.

He, however, warned that the command would not hesitate to penalise offenders found guilty of disobeying traffic laws. (NAN)
