He said the accident happened on Friday, noting that critically injured two people in an accident involving 16 male adults and three female adults.

While sympathising with the families of the deceased, Stephen Dawulung, said, “I wish to advise drivers to avoid night travel because visibility is normally poor at night.”

According to him, “Drivers are also most likely to be under fatigue and sleepy at night and yet drive at top speed because the roads are relatively freer of traffic at night.

Drivers must therefore adhere to stipulated speed limits and observe a minimum of 30 minutes rest after every four hours drive to avoid fatigue and sleep while driving.”

The FRSC stated that “the dead victims have been deposited at the morgue of the Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja, while the injured victims were also taken to the same hospital for medical attention.”
