The Yobe State Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), has observed with dismay the increase in the occurrence of road traffic crashes in recent times on the highways of the state

This was disclosed in a press release issued to newsmen in Damaturu by the Acting Public Relations Officer of the Command, SMI Mohammed Kalli.
