The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Bauchi State has said 35 people were killed in road crashes in the state in November.
The Sector Commander of the FRSC in Bauchi, Yusuf Abdullahi, yesterday during a meeting with members of the sector’s Special Marshalls, said, “I am very sorry to say, but the fact is that the devil has taken over our roads in Bauchi State. We really need to stand up and do something to reclaim the roads.
The situation is so terrible that in the month of November, it was a case of one death per day because we had not less than 35 deaths from road crashes across the state. This is worrisome and disturbing; something has to be done quickly.”
Also, the state’s Coordinator of the Special Marshalls, Dr Kunle Gbadamosi said, “We have to join hands to pray and intensify enlightenment and education of road users on the need to be cautious while using the roads.”
