The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Osun on Wednesday said that no fewer than 12 lives were lost in various road accidents in November 2018.
The Sector Commander, Mr Peter Oke, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Osogbo.
According to him, most accidents occurred as a result of speed, impatient and wrongful overtaking by motorists, among others.
He said: “The number of road accidents within the month of November was 21, which led to the death of 12 persons.
“The command apprehended 587 offenders and educated 219 persons with thorough warning against traffic offences.’’
Oke said the command issued about 1,112 driver’s licences to motorists and also embarked on some awareness programmes to sensitise the public on road-related matters.
“We did 13 radio programmes, nine television programmes to educate and inform the public about the activities of the FRSC; and the dangers associated with Road Traffic Accidents (RTA), ‘’ he said.
Oke, however, called on motorists to obey traffic laws, saying that the command would not hesitate to deal with anyone that violated the laws.
