It was black-letter day as two operatives of the Federal Road Safety Corps were crushed to death along Ikot-Ikpene–Aba expressway Friday November 25.

Spokesperson of the traffic regulating agency, Bisi Kazeem said the accident took place following reckless driving by driver of a DAF articulated truck while trying to dodge a pothole.

The Acting Corps Marshal, FRSC, Dauda Biu, lamented the continuous casualty against officers as a result overspeeding by some drivers who ply the route.

Bisi said, “The Acting Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps, Dauda Biu has decried the incessant knock down/ crushing of patrol operatives as a result of the recklessness of some drivers who have continuously violated the legally prescribed speed limit.

“He stated this while bemoaning the death of two Operatives of the Corps as he pledged the resolve of the Corps to apprehend perpetrators of this deadly act and force them to face the wrath of the law.

“According to preliminary investigation , the fatal crash involved FRSC Patrol Vehicle and a white coloured truck. The road crash affected a total of 8 male adults, out of which 2 sustained severe injuries, 2 were killed while the remaining 4 passengers were rescued without any injuries.

“The injured persons have been taken to Ikot Ekpene General Hospital and the dead deposited in the mortuary of the same hospital respectively.

“The acting corps marshal, expresses his heartfelt condolences to the families of the staff who lost their lives in active service while assuring the public of the corps’ resilience and resolve to ensure that the perpetrators of such bad driving culture are forced to face the law; or desist from such act by complying with acceptable road safety regulations, as the corps will not spare anyone engaged in this deadly act of recklessness on the road.”
