He explained that within the period under review, the command recorded 766 RTCs, with about 5, 272 persons involved, with 2, 607 sustaining various degrees of injuries.

The sector commander also said that 204 of the RTCs were fatal, 483 serious while and 79 were minor. He explained that the RTCs were caused by human, vehicular and environmental factors.

He, however, said that the corps concentrated on the drivers during sensitisation, because little mistakes by them could lead to accidents as they drive and control the vehicles.
