Massive potholes cause 127 deaths on Benin-Asaba road


Abysmal multiple potholes on the Benin-Asaba Expressway have continued to wreak havoc on motorists, especially truck drivers as 127 persons have lost their lives plying the death-trap.

Investigations show that the pitiable state of the Benin-Asaba/Ughelli/Ebu/Abuja/Agbor/Abraka federal roads portends sorrow, as it records almost daily casualty of motorists and passengers.

Several motorists who spoke to The Guardian, flayed federal government’s neglect, calling for urgent solutions, adding that failure to do so might result in more fatalities.

The Delta State Commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Random Kulven confirmed that 253 cases of accidents were recorded in the last one year while 46 cars were razed in the period reviewed.
