11 Road Crashes in Ogun State During Easter Result in 4 Deaths and 40 Injuries



Over the Easter holiday period, Ogun State recorded a total of 11 road crashes, leading to the unfortunate deaths of four individuals and causing injuries to 40 others, as reported by the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).

Speaking to reporters in Ota, the State Sector Commander of the FRSC, Anthony Uga, disclosed these statistics during a briefing held at the conclusion of a 4-day Special Patrol initiative implemented for the Easter festivities.

Uga credited the success in minimizing accidents during the Easter season to the extensive efforts made by the FRSC through their special patrol, which commenced on March 29 and concluded on April 2.

“By deploying a significant number of both Regular and Special Marshals, we were able to significantly reduce accident rates,” mentioned Uga, emphasizing that the vigilance of their personnel played a crucial role in curbing reckless driving behaviors that often led to road mishaps.

He urged motorists to consistently adhere to traffic laws and regulations, stressing the importance of compliance not only during holidays but at all times for safety on the roads.

Furthermore, Uga reaffirmed the FRSC’s dedication to working in conjunction with other relevant agencies to enhance the safety of the nation’s highways and ensure a secure environment for motorists.
