Accidents claims 52 lives in Zamfara

31 January 2014, 22:51

Gusau - The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in Zamfara said that 52 people were killed, while 439 others sustained injuries in road crashes in 2013.

The FRSC Sector Commandant, Haliru Halilu, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Gusau on Friday that the figure was recorded 191 road accidents.

Halilu said that the rate of accidents in 2013 decreased compared to  previous years, and described it as a great achievement and encouragement.

He attributed the feat to the command’s intensive programmes and support from stakeholders.

"Despite the large volume of vehicles in the state, including those given by the state government, our operations are progressing," he said.

He urged the public to cooperate with the command to ensure effective and safety road usage.

According to him, only a robust relationship among stakeholders and respect for traffic rules could promote road safety in the state.
