 The FRSC has arrested 246 motorists in Kwara, Edo, Osun, Jigawa and Ekiti States for violating various traffic offences in the commission’s ongoing nationwide special patrol for the Easter festivities.

A statement issued by the commission’s Public Education Officer, Mr Jonas Agwu, on Sunday said that 232 of the offenders had been convicted and fined by mobile courts, while 14 were cautioned and discharged.

The statement noted that speed limit violation, dangerous driving, over-loading and non-use of seat belt were the prevalent offences.

It added that one of the FRSC’s Regular Marshals, Mr Iyakwo Danlami, was killed by a truck in Kogi on Saturday.

The statement said that the officer was attached to the Zariagi Unit Command of the FRSC in Kogi.

It noted that the over-speeding truck, a Mercedes Benz  with registration number, XB 30 KTU, knocked down and killed the officer along the Zariagi-Lokoja Road while he was on special patrol.

The driver, it added, escaped after the incident but his boy was arrested and had been handed over to the “B” Division of the Nigeria Police in Lokoja for further investigation.

“The body of the late Marshal has been deposited at the Lokoja Specialist Hospital Mortuary.’’

According to the statement, the truck belongs to one Bolaji Rafiu, of 17 Imam Ojoku Str., Agege, Lagos.
