Mr Paul Goar, the deputy commandant of the Federal Road Safety Corps also added that the fatal accident which killed four people and injured eight people would have been duly prevented and avoided if the drivers of the vehicles have fully made use of the FRSC awareness campaign which fights against the use of fake tyres by drives on the expressway.
Mr Paul Goar warned the private and commercial drivers henceforth, that the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) will deal decisively with road users that fail to adhere to the law about making use of fake spare tyres and spare parts.
