Five killed in Niger road accident

No fewer than five people have been confirmed dead following an accident in Lambata Kwakuti Road in Gurara local government area of Niger state.

It was gathered that the accident involved a white-colour BMW car and Scana truck.

Confirming the incident, FRSC Sector Commander, Yusuf Garba said the accident was caused by over speeding and dangerous overtaking.

He said that FRSC personnel in the outposts would continue to monitor road users against overloading and dangerous driving.

Garba further appealed to motorists to always obey speed limits as prescribed by the law and also install speed limiting devices in their vehicles to checkmate over-speeding.

”We have since embarked on a 24-hour patrol on all the federal highways to ensure safety of road users by enforcing traffic rules and regulations,” he added.
