Share This

It was a moment of grief in Ughelli, Delta State as an officer of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) attached to the Ughelli Unit yet to be identified was crushed to death while two others sustained varying degrees of injures in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State.


It was gathered that the incident occurred along the ever-busy East/West Road at Ekrerhavwe-Agbarho junction while the officer was on official duty.
A source who spoke on condition of anonymity said; “the FRSC officers were on patrol when a blue Toyota Camry with registration number Lagos AGL 405 GJ coming from Warri end of the road rammed into their stationed van with registrstion number A0/1-882 RS and killed one of the officers and injured two others.
The source further disclosed that the FRSC patrol vehicle was cut into two due to impact of the crash suspected to be excessive speed of the ill-fated Camry.”
The corpse of the officer, it was learnt has been deposited at Ughelli Central Hospital morgue.

A Medical officer who spoke off record, said, “one of the men was brought in dead and we have to deposit his corpse at the mortuary, one other was attended to and the other was rushed to a private hospital for proper medical attention.”
Attempt to get confirmation at the Ughelli Unit of the FRSC proved abortive as nobody wants to speak but an officer spoke on condition of anonymity, saying, “our madam is not her right frame of mind and she cannot speak with you guys right now because she is not authorized to do so.”
The officer said, “the Toyota Camry coming from Warri rammed into our vehicle and one of our officers was killed in the process and two others were rushed to Central Hospital Ughelli and Ufor Hospital for medical attention”.
He added, “we cannot give out the name of the officer that was killed because we are yet to inform his family and you can get more details from the State headquarters and not from here.”
Lamenting over the gruesome killing of the FRSC, Dr Joel Ejutememuh, President of Urhobo Youth Vision said; “our officers should be very cautious while discharging their duties. They should be safety cautious about their own lives while protecting road users. And road users should be careful and obey traffic rules.”
He added, “a similar situation almost happened at Orerokpe where a driver would have killed a Road Safety Officer if not God. They must be careful in discharging their duties.” (Daily Independent)
