Katsina - The Katsina State Sector Command of the Federal Roads Safety Corps (FRSC) on Wednesday said that two people died in a New Year Day accident at Dandagoro, in Batagarawa Local Government area of the state.

Alhaji Habu Dauda, the FRSC Sector Commander, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Katsina. He said that a man and a woman lost their lives in the accident, which occurred at about 9.22 p.m. on Jan. 1. Dauda said that the accident involved an unmarked motorbike and a Volkswagen Golf 3 car, with Reg. No. CF927ABC.

He said that one of the two men on the motorbike and a woman in the car died on the spot, while three other victims were rushed to the Katsina General Hospital. Dauda advised motorists to avoid driving on the wrong lane, and to always abide by traffic rules and regulations to forestall such incidence.

He pledged that the FRSC would continue to enlighten road users on the dangers associated with wrong overtaking, over speeding and reckless driving.

An eye witness, Musa Aliyu, blamed the incident on the motorbike operator, who was said to have collided with the car while riding on the wrong lane.
