The Federal Road Safety Corp, FRSC, has deployed 1,200 officers to Kogi State to ensure free flow of traffic before, during and after this weekend’s Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.

 

The Kogi State Sector Commander of FRSC, Idris Fika made the disclosure during an interview with newsmen earlier today, Wednesday July 29.

 

While expressing the readiness of his Command to ensure an hitch free celebration, Fika noted that the officers had been deployed to strategic areas across the 21 Local Government Area of the State.

 

According to him, drivers plying through routes in Kogi State, should avoid over-loading and ensure that passengers are compelled to wear facemask in line with the COVID-19 protocols.

 

 

He said the Command will not hesitate to try any motorist who violates traffic rules. 

 

Fika added that, the state which is housing eight unit Commands and two outposts, will put all measures in place to avoid unnecessary auto-crash.

 

 

When asked if the Command will institute a Mobile Court if motorists flout the warning, the Sector Commander averred that, "If the need arises, Mobile Court will be there. We are also going around, informing people to observe the COVID-19 protocols. We are also enforcing by booking and fining motorists that refuse to adhere to the directive. We are very serious about it on the observance of COVID-19 rules. COVID-19 is real and we advise Nigerians not to derail from the Federal Government directive”.
