74 FRSC Officials Killed In 18 Months


The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Boboye Oyeyemi, Wednesday said reckless drivers killed at least 74 of his officials in the last 18 months across the country.

Speaking at the Haulage and Logistics Magazine Annual Conference and Exhibition held in Lagos, he said: “In the last 18 months, I have lost about 74 lives. We will not stop at ensuring the prosecution of those errand drivers. It is my responsibility to ensure the safety of my personnel on the highway. So, if you knock down my personnel and you are running away, I will go after you.”

Boboye said the commission was advocating an upward review of fines payable by users of mobile telephones while on the wheels.
