He however pointed out that the car, which was supposed to carry five passengers, was conveying 10 passengers.

“We felt bad about this avoidable crash and admonish commercial drivers in particular to desist from speeding, overloading and using second hand tyres.

“The crash could be attributed to a number of factors working simultaneously – bad tyres, overloading, speeding and brake failure,” he said.

The sector commander said the accident could have been avoided if the driver obeyed all critical rules in driving.

“Therefore, the FRSC advised motorists to desist from speeding and overloading and using second hand tyres under whatever circumstances,” he added.

The sector commander further said that the corps recovered N240,000 belonging to the deceased and had been handed over to their relatives.
