The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in Osun on Tuesday said that 10 persons lost their lives in 19 motor accidents across the state in Dec. 2017.

The Sector Commander, Mr Anthony Oko, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Osogbo.

Oko attributed the accidents largely to speeding, drunkenness and wrongful overtaking on the part of the drivers.

He said that the command was able to apprehend 362 road traffic offenders and issued 300 driving licenses in December.

The sector commander said that 62 persons out of the 362 offenders were educated on safety matters, while the command embarked on 12 radio and eight television enlightenment programmes on road safety.

Oko cautioned motorists against disobeying road traffic regulations, adding that anyone caught in the act would be dealt with according to road traffic laws.
