Delta State Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Mr. Rindom Kunvem has debunked allegations that roadblocks by officials of the agency were responsible for vehicular accidents in Delta State. Reacting yesterday ( Thursday) to the allegation made by state chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) at a stakeholders’ meeting during the visit of the Inspector-General of Police (I-G), Mr. Solomon Arase to the state last week, Kunvem challenged the union to the “name spots of accidents as a result of FRSC’s unprofessional conducts on roads.”
The Delta FRSC commander described the NURTW leader who made the allegation as an aggrieved as a traffic offender probably sanctioned by road safety officials. He said that several motorists were convicted by special courts across the state for various traffic violations during the Easter holidays. He stressed that FRSC officials had a practice of not blocking roads or parking more than one or two vehicles at a time for checks simply to ensure that no scene was created on the road.
