At least 106 have been fatally injured and 2 dead since the months of July, August and September 2021, in Borno State, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Commander, Sanusi Kiri, has revealed.
Sanusi Kiri, who made the disclosure in a statement, said, “The deaths in the state were as a result of high speed along Jakana and Auno Village – the main penetration zone of Boko Haram.”
He also said that the 106 people were injured during the third quarter of the month due to the road crash.
According to Kiri, they have recorded 106 people injured and 2 deaths since July, August and September, 2021.
He said, “Drivers are now compiling with the rules and regulations guideline compared to last year, 2020. This was due to our public enlightenment and campaign in the state.”
Kiri noted that the Borno State Government has also embarked on rehabilitation of the bad roads along Maiduguri-Damaturu Road, which as a result of that has reduced road transportation crashes (RTC).
Kiri also noted that the behaviours of road users were an important determinant of a country’s road safety performance.
He warned motorists to continue to abide by traffic rules and desist from reckless driving so as to prevent accidents and promote safety on the highways.
