Yuletide: FRSC Deploys 800 Personnel for Highway Patrol in Kogi


The Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, says it has deployed 800 personnel for highway patrol in Kogi as part of its Operation Zero Road Traffic Crash for the yuletide.

The state FRSC Sector Commander, Mr Samuel Oyedeji, revealed this in a statement in Lokoja on Wednesday.

He said the operation which began on Dec.15 would end on Monday, Jan. 15.

Oyedeji charged motorists to obey traffic rules, avoid dangerous driving, overloading and the use of cell phones when driving.

“This is because enforcement will be focused on checkmating and sanctioning traffic offenders to curb unnecessary loss of lives on the highways,” he said.

According to him, the deployment includes regular and special marshals, 25 patrol vehicles, 3 ambulances and a heavy-duty tow truck to ensure free movement of vehicles during and after the yuletide.
