The Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Akwa Ibom State, Mr Matthew Olonisaye, said two persons died and 10 others injured in a road crash which occurred on Sunday.
He disclosed this in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Uyo on Monday.
The sector commander said the crash involved a Toyota Hiace bus (KMR 201 XA) belonging to a transport company and Honda Accord car (NGD 228 AE) on Abak- kot Abasi Road by Oku-Abak in Akwa Ibom. He urged vehicle owners to ensure that their vehicles were in order before they put them on the road, to avoid road crash, especially during the rainy season. Olonisaye said the crash was rather unfortunate as it could have been avoided, if only the drivers were conscious and sensitive enough to understand the intricate nature of night driving, especially during this rainy season.
He urged the motoring public to desist from acts capable of endangering lives and property of other road users.(NAN)
