“After the rescue operation, the retrieved crashed vehicle was handed over to the DPO Nigeria Police Force, Ifetedo Division.”

Benamaisia, who warned that motorists should desist from excessive speeding that could lead to loss of lives and properties, added that all road users must be safety conscious at all times and drive defensively.
