nigeria police badgeThe FCT Police Command said yesterday there was no crime recorded in the territory throughout the Easter celebrations.

The command spokesperson, DSP Altine Daniel, confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

Daniel attributed this to the commitment of personnel of the command and cooperation of residents of theterritory.

However, the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) says it recorded two deaths in five accidents in the territory during the period.

The FCT Sector Commander of the FRSC, Mr Susan Ajenge, told NAN that one of the deaths was recorded aGwarimpa, while the other was at Abaji Area Council.

Ajenge described the accident rate as low, saying that this followed the adequate deployment of men of the command to the highways.

She said the personnel was mandated to carry out “traffic calm down’’, explaining that it was done by “taking positions on the expressways and waving down motorists speeding’’.

Meanwhile, reprieve is yet to come for commuters on the Abuja-Keffi expressway as the military continued to mount barricade on the road for stop and search, leading to heavy traffic.

They began the exercise four days after the explosion that rocked the Nyanya bus terminus, killing more than 70 people with over 120 sustaining various injuries.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that many of the commuters, especially civil servants, anxious to report at work on time resorted to the use commercial motorcycles.

The operators took them from either Mararaba or Nyanya, up to the AYA round about at Asokoro, charging between N300and N200.

However, the soldiers conducting the check compelled them to discharge their passengers 50 meters to the check-point and push their motorcycles pass the point, up to 50 meters away, before starting off with their passengers. (NAN)
