The Awka Sec­tor Com­mand of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), has ex­pressed worry over ris­ing cases of al­co­holism among commercial bus driv­ers.

Deputy Sec­tor Com­man­der and Head of Op­er­a­tions, Mr Adewunmi Malomo yes­ter­day in Awka said the trend had be­come wor­ri­some to the corps.

Malomo, who led a team of the corps per­son­nel on safety cam­paign to the Liv­ing Faith Church (LFC) Amaw­bia, said the driv­ers usu­ally claimed they “only took roots’’.

He, how­ever, pointed out that the roots were usu­ally soaked in lo­cal gin which they claimed had cure for so many ail­ments.

“Drink­ing roots be­fore driv­ing is al­co­holism, be­cause it is usu­ally soaked in the lo­cal gin (ogogoro) to bring out its con­tents be­fore drink­ing,” he said. (NAN)
