Family of Late Adebomojo Oluwaseun, an official of the Federal Road Safety Commission, Federal Capital Territory Command, who was killed by a hit and run driver on Sunday, 16th December, 2018 while on official duty has called on authorities and stakeholders to appeal to the Federal Road Safety Commission to release the corpse to the family, for interment.
The elder sister to the deceased, Mrs. Adeola George-Ogosi, who spoke on behalf of the family in Ado Ekiti, today called on well meaning Nigerians to implore to the FRSC to release the body for burial in order relief the trauma currently experienced by the entire family.
According to her, “since the breaking of news about Seun’s death, the whole family has been in sadness, his mother and wife are currently on the hospital bed and Doctors are still trying to revive them from the shock. We were told by the FRSC that it has completed his autopsy yesterday, every necessary documents have been filled and we are expecting his body to arrive today, only to be told that there is an order from above that his body should not be released.
This has caused us another trauma. We are appealing to well meaning Nigerians to speak to the FRSC. We were told the driver escaped but the vehicle had been impounded, however, what has happened can’t be reversed but we must forestall the occurrence of another sad event in the family, which might be occasioned by the delay currently experienced in the release of his body by the Road Safety. FRSC, please release my brother’s corpse”, she said.
Mrs. George-Igosi noted that every effort to convince the FRSC on the need to immediately release body of the deceased and prevent imminent challenges to the family has been fruitless.
However, efforts by reporters to speak with the FRSC official who has been relating with the family proved abortive, as his phone was switched off.
It could be recalled that the FRSC recently lost a very senior officer to a road accident in Delta State and in the twilight, the death of Adebomojo Oluwaseun of the FRSC was also recorded.
