Road Crashes Kill More Nigerians Than Insecurity — Force PRO
Spread The News

The Public Relations Officer of the Nigerian Police Force, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has said that Nigeria records more road crashes than other countries.

Adejobi noted that the avoidable road accidents in Nigeria actually kill more innocent citizens than insecurity based on the records available to the police.

The FPRO stated this on Wednesday while responding to an X user who told him to tell the Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun, who was attending the World Police Summit in Dubai, UAE, to observe the organisation of police stations in Dubai and the absence of accidents and seized vehicles.

In his response, Adejobi wrote, “Stations littered with accident(ed) and seized vehicles are not the fault of the police. It’s a legal matter and, in most cases, reckless nature of some Nigerian drivers.

“In Dubai, they are not reckless on the road, and you can’t drive in Dubai without being certified and licenced. This is common in Nigeria.
