FRSC Corps Marshal Dauda Biu Cautions Motorist For The Umpteenth Time Against Speed Violation, Night Trips And Wrongful Overtaking

Disturbed by the death of 17 people in two separate night trips, the Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps, Dauda Ali Biu has for the umpteenth time cautioned drivers against night trips, overloading and excessive speeding.

He gave the caution again after receiving the report of the 2 landmark crashes that occured at the early hours of today, Monday 04 March, 2024 at Tashar Yari village along Zaria-Kano Expressway and Fire Service Academy along Yangoji-Gwagwalada expressway.

According to the reports submitted by crash investigation teams of the Corps, the Tashan Yari village crash which occurred at 0736, involved a trailer overloaded with grains and 40 passengers seating on top of the goods. The Trailer with registration number KTG 454 ZZ which was on a night trip, enroute Kano from Azare, was said to have crashed due to wrongful overtaking, driving against legal speed limit as well as overloading of vehicle with goods and people alike. Out of the number, 12 victims were killed, while 28 sustained different levels of injuries.

On the other hand, at 0435HRS, a particular J5 bus on a night trip that drove on a speed that was against prescribed limit on that route, crashed onto a broken down Trailer that got spoilt on the expressway, and exploded into flames.

As a result of the impact of the crash, the 5 victims were burnt beyond recognition. The Crash Investigation Report attributes the cause of the crash to Speed violation which led to loss of control.

The crash occurred on the Yangoji-Gwagwalada expressway. It involved a Trailer without registration number and a J5 Peugeot registered as XF 530GRK.

FRSC rescue team that handled the rescue operations have taken the injured victims of the Tashan Yari crash to Makarfi General Hospital.

You would recall that Dauda Biu had during his press briefing on the review of 2023 activities of the Corps decried the rate of fatal crashes that occur as a result of night trips and fragrant violation of legal speed limits on the highways and overloading of vehicles.

During that briefing, he highlighted some of the dangers associated with night trips such as poor visibility, fatigue, excessive speed and delayed post-crash response. He also cautioned against the risks associated with overloading of vehicles especially trailers and smaller trucks that load vehicles with goods, persons and animals.

In view of the need to address this menace, the Corps Marshal has directed Commanding Officers to step up enforcement, stakeholders’ engagement, as well as enhance advocacy campaigns.

In another development, the Corps Marshal has decorated the newly appointed Deputy Corps Marshal representing the North East Geopolitical Zone, DCM Muhammed Kaigama Kabo. He also decorated the 6 other Assistant Corps Marshals that were also promoted in the just concluded 2023 exercise.
