He maintained that 479 were arrested for various offences ranging from violation of traffic rules and driving without license, among others.

The corps commander urged road users in the state to be cautious on the highways, especially in August due to the excessive rainfall witnessed during the month.

Ogunyemi blamed majority of road accidents to abandoned or broken down vehicles on the highways which, he said, had claimed so many lives.

He then advised motorists to always fasten their seat-belt while driving and ensure that they have “C-Caution’’ in their vehicles to alert and prevent articulated vehicles from ramming into them.
