FRSC Returns N1m Recharge Cards Back To Accident Victim

FRSC Returns Accident Victim’s N1m Recharge Cards

The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) on Monday returned N1 million worth of recharge cards, among others, to an accident victim, Mrs Felicia Obanla.

The Ogun Sector Commander, Ayobami Omiyale, told newsmen in Ota while handing over the items to the victim that the accident occurred on Aug. 17 in Ota, involving five vehicles.

``An articulated vehicle coming from Lagos to Sango lost control around Sango Ota Toll Gate and rammed into a Mazda bus, marked, LAGOS XV 388 KJA.

``This also rammed into a Nissan Pathfinder jeep, marked, TF 368 KJA, and this jeep seriously hit Obanla as she was about to come down from a commercial motorcycle.

``She lost conscious immediately and the FRSC Rescue Team took charge of the scene and conveyed victims to nearby hospitals for first aid treatments.

Omiyale said although 17 people were involved in the accident, only five people were injured.

He said that N11, 000 cash, a cell phone,  ATM cards, deposit slip, keys, among others were also recovered at the scene of the accident.

 He said it was difficult to locate Obanla because all the accident victims had been discharged from the hospital when the FRSC officials visited the hospital to hand over the materials.

``We started searching for her because of the worth of materials recovered and later found her at Medicare Clinic where she was receiving treatment.

``Some people had earlier come to our office, claiming to be her relatives but we insisted that we want the handing over covered by the media,’’ he said.

Omiyale blamed  the frequency of accidents in the area on bad roads and recklessness among road users.

He urged the appropriate authorities to complete the road construction and provide adequate parks for commercial vehicles.

``When this is done even if an articulated vehicle loses control, it would not affect a lot of vehicles as it happened,’’ he said.

Responding, Obanla expressed gratitude to the FRSC officials and confirmed that all the items were intact.

``I don’t know that Nigerians can be this honest, I am very proud of this country,’’ she said. (NAN)
