The FRSC  in Osun on Monday said  213 deaths were recorded from road traffic crashes in the state between  January and December 2013.

The  figure was disclosed by the state  Sector Commander, Mr  Muhammed Husaini,  in  an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Osogbo.

According to Husaini, 288 crashes occurred in the state within the period under review while  1,341 persons were involved.

He attributed the crashes to over speeding and the  poor   condition of  roads, adding that the state government was redressing the situation through  road construction and rehabilitation.

The FRSC boss, however, called on motorists to observe  road safety rules, saying the  commission was determined to secure lives  on the roads.

He vowed that any one caught violating road traffic rules would be apprehended and prosecuted. (NAN)
