90% of auto crashes caused by fake parts — FRSC

About 90 per cent of accidents witnessed on the roads in the country are caused by fake vehicle parts fixed mostly by mechanics, the Federal Road Safety Corps has said.


The FRSC Sector Commander in Abuja, Mr. Sunday Oghenekaro, who was represented by the Superintendent Route Commander, Mr. Barnabas Asongo, said this in an interview after inaugurating the new leadership of the Association of Auto Works and Technicians of Nigeria (FCT chapter).

Oghenekaro, therefore, appealed to vehicle mechanics to always stick to original auto parts in order to reduce road accidents.

While he lauded AAWATON in contributing to the nation’s development, the sector commander charged members of the association to cut corners while doing their work, saying the FRSC was ready to assist the organisation when necessary.

He said, “I’m hoping that this is an event that marks the beginning of better things to come. We believe that our organisation will partner with yours to keep our road safer.”



  1. Lie, big lie !
    Over 90% of accidents on Nigerian roads are caused by dangerous driving, particular by overspeeding
    A large majority of Nigeria’s motorists seem not to have a clue of the traffic code, or they just relish in breaking the traffic rules
    A good driver can easily discern that the driving standard of most motorists on our roads is very poor
    The FRSC officials should stop bribe taken and enforce the traffic the rules without any compromise
