Road Safety officers ordered to return back to roads
NEWSMAN, Abuja – Federal Road Safety Corps has ordered all its officers to immediately resume operational activities in all formations of the Corps across the country.
In a statement signed by Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem on Friday, FRSC Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi ordered all the officers of the Corps to return to their duty posts while mourning the victims of Enugu Crash.
The Corps had earlier suspended all enforcement activities as a result of the unrest that trailed the #EndSARS protests in the country as some offices of the Corps were also torched by rampaging hoodlums who hijacked the protests against police brutality to terrorise Nigerians including road users.
“Oyeyemi instructed all Commanding Officers to keep the roads safe, enforce maximum compliance to road traffic regulations and safety guides as well as forestall incidences of crashes and fatalities on the highways”, the statement read.
He said the Corps was not dispirited by the attacks on some of its properties by hoodlums, adding that “the Corps is still deeply committed to the full realisation of its corporate mandate” which includes keeping the roads safe at all times.
Oyeyemi assured the personnel that everything humanly possible would be done to safeguard lives and properties.
The FRSC boss also mourned the 21 victims who lost their lives in an auto crash in Enugu State on Wednesday.
