The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) returned the N716,800 found at the site of an automobile accident in Ozubulu along the Onitsha-Owerri highway to the family of the deceased.

Mr. Bamidele Ayanwale, the unit commander in Oraifite, handed over the sum on Tuesday.

He said the amount was recovered when FRSC officers were on a rescue mission after the crash.

Ayanwale said the money belonging to the late Ms Oparaocha was returned to her son, Mr Chibueze Oparaocha, after a written engagement with full identification by the unit’s intelligence officer.

According to him, the FRSC contacted the relatives via the cell phone of the deceased.

The FRSC boss said the crash involved a Nissan bus with registration number LSH-517YG and a truck with registration number GGU-83XA.

According to him, seven people: three men and four women were involved in the accident that occurred on March 22 in Ozubulu in the Ekwusigo local government area in Anambra.

He added that the driver and a passenger of the bus later died.

The FRSC boss said the accident happened due to speeding.

However, he urged motorists to always be patient when driving on highways to avoid loss of life and property.

Chibueze Oparaocha, the son of the deceased, thanked the FRSC for their kindness and honesty.

“I was surprised when we received the call to come and collect the money found on my late mother. I did not think that such a gesture could still happen in Nigeria today.

“I thank the FRSC for its efforts and honesty,” he said. (NOPE)
