operative of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Sehinde Abolusoro,
was killed in a road accident in Akure, Ondo state over the weekend.
The 36-year-old officer was killed on the busy Ilesa-Akure Express Road while on duty.
According to reports, Abolusoro was crushed to death after checking
and passing some vehicles. The deceased was the Deputy Route Commander
(DRC) in the Ondo Sector Command.
An eyewitness who spoke with SAHARA reporters said the FRSC officer was crushed by the roadside and later lost his breath.
“The driver, in full speed, was trying to avoid a big truck and in the process veered off his lane.
In that same process, he hit the officer that was standing almost by
the roadside to control other incoming vehicles,” the witness said.
