“Our analysis shows that the top five causes of the road accidents were speeding, wrongful overtaking, dangerous driving, tyres burst and brake failure.

“We identified Nteje-Onitsha Road as the most prevalent route in cases of accident fatality within the period under review.

“Similarly, Upper-Iweka Road, Head Bridge and Ihiala-Orifite were also identified as routes with high record of road crashes.

“We are working hard to check those routes,’’ he said.

The commander said that the corps would sustain its collaboration with other security agencies to ensure a safe motoring environment for the year.

“We were able to achieve so much in 2019 through our public enlightenment programmes, advocacy visits to Churches, Mosques, schools and parks, as well as road shows.

“We have set plans in motion to consolidate on what we achieved in 2019.

“We shall embark on massive public enlightenment programmes in all the nooks and crannies of the state.

“Our goal is to reduce road crashes, and if there will be a crash, let there be no death,’’ he said.

Kumapayi thanked Gov. Willie Obiano for his support via the procurement of vehicles for the intensification of patrol and rescue operations along routes with high crash records to further reduce casualties.
