The Federal Road Safety Corps has returned the sum of N500,000.00 recovered from an accident scene to its owner, Ms. Hafsat Idris.
The Ilesha Unit Commander of the FRSC, Mr. Samuel Oyedeji, said on Wednesday that the money was recovered on April 25, 2017, from the scene of an auto crash involving a Toyota Pravia marked, EKY 626 AC, along the Ilesa- Ipetu Ijesa Road.
The FRSC boss, who presented the money to a brother of the victim, Jimoh Abdulrasak, said the owner of the money was still critically ill at a hospital as a result of the injuries she sustained in the crash.
Oyedeji explained that the money was returned to the owner after the agency had carried out thorough investigations to ascertain the owner, saying the victim’s brother brought documents to prove that he had the permission of his sister to collect the money on her behalf.
The FRSC boss said, “We have taken permission from the zonal commander to return the money. I appreciate the rescue team, especially the head of the team, for being honest.”
Abdulrasak expressed gratitude to the FRSC for returning the money, urging the agency to intensify campaign against the use of Tokunbo tyres.
