FRSC Releases Damning Interim Report on Crash Involving Late Ocholi’s Convoy

The car in which the late junior Minister of Labour and Employment, James Ocholi died alongside his wife and son, did not pass simple road worthiness.
Apart from the fact the tyres were not properly fixed, they were no alignment.
All these came as a result of investigation by the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and formed part of an interim report submitted to the Federal Executive Council on the crash, Wednesday.
In the report presented by FRSC Corps Marshall Boboye Oyeyemi, which turned out a damning verdict on government vehicles, also brought to the fore the impunity that characterizes every facet of nation’s life.
The FRSC boss said from investigation, his team discovered that over speeding led to the accident which occurred Sunday on the Kaduna-Abuja Road.
Oyeyemi told the Federal Executive Council that the investigation also showed that Ocholi’s driver had no licence.
According to him, it was also discovered that the late Minister, his wife and the son were not on safety seat belts.
Oyeyemi also stated that the investigation team discovered that the ill-fated vehicle conveying the late Minister and his family had no walkie-talkie otherwise known as a handheld transceiver.
It was also found out that the tyres of the ill-fated SUV were not properly fixed and had no proper alignment. The FRSC boss added that all MDAs cars were not properly registered.
Ocholi’s convoy was involved in a car crash on Sunday afternoon about 4pm on Abuja- Kaduna Road that claimed his life, wife and son. While father and son died on the spot, the wife later died at the National Hospital, Abuja.
