The Federal Road Safety Commission has confirmed the
death of two persons in an accident in Abuja on Saturday.
Mr Sunday Oghenekaro, the FRSC Sector Commander in FCT,
said that the incident occurred on the Gwarimpa bypass at
7 a.m., involving two Toyota Camry cars.
According to him, three persons, comprising of two males
and a female, were victims of the accident.
He said that a male and the only female died on the spot,
while the other male was critically injured.
“The cause of the accident was speed because if you look at
the impact, one of the vehicles almost torn to shreds.
“Our rescue team arrived at the scene about 10 minutes
after the accident and was able to evacuate the bodies to
Kubwa General Hospital.
“The injured victim was, however, taken to the Federal
Medical Centre in Jabi District,’’ he said.
An eyewitness had earlier said that one of the dead was a
police officer with the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, but the
FRSC sector commander could not immediately confirm
Oghenekaro listed the items recovered at the scene to
include one AK-47 rifle, mobile phones and an undisclosed
amount of cash.
