Patrol Awka, Jan. 22, 2020 The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) says it is intensifying patrol on major roads and highways in Anambra to check recurring road traffic accidents in the state.

The state Sector Commander, Mr Andrew Kumapayi, disclosed this in an interview with Nigeria News Agency on Wednesday in Akwa at the inauguration of what he called “Motoring Patrol.’’

Kumapayi said that already more personnel and vehicles had been deployed across major roads in the state.

“In the last four days, we have been recording roads accidents along Onitsha-Nteje-Awka Expressways in which lives were lost.

“Since it is becoming a daily occurrence, we cannot fold our hands, while people continue to die in road accidents.

“This is why we are launching what we call ”Motorised Patrol” to increase the presence of our personnel on the roads.

“These patrol teams will be roaming the major roads, cautioning drivers against speeding and those trying to overtake wrongfully so that road accident can be reduced to the barest minimum in Anambra,’’ he said.

Kumapayi noted that most of the accidents occurred on the highways in the state which include Nteje-Onitsha Expressway, Awka-Onitsha Expressway and Upper-Iweka Roads.

The sector commander said the special patrol became necessary to reduce accident and save lives and property.

He advised motorists to drive with care and desist from speeding and all forms of dangerous driving.
