frsc-logoThe Kwara Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Wednesday said that 111 persons died

in 200 road accidents in the state in 2014.

The Sector Commander, Mrs Mary Wakawa, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin.

She also said that 659 people sustained injuries in road crashes during the year.

Wakawa said that the command’s mobile court prosecuted 417 people for various traffic offences, while the command convicted 378 people and discharged 39 during the year under review.

She told NAN that 2015 required greater attention because of the electioneering campaigns.

The sector commander identified speeding as the mostly committed traffic offence in the state.
