Abuja: Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has clarified that none of its personnel were currently carrying guns or any other firearms when on patrol or any other official duty.B
ACM Bisi Kazeem, FRSC Public Education Officer disclosed this in a statement made available to Flowerbudnews .
Bisi Kazeem Said that FRSC;
wishes to inform the general public that personnel of the Commission have not started carrying guns or any other fire arms whether on patrol or any other official duty.
This information has become very pertinent following the image of an operative who was captured on camera carrying fire arms in a position that suggests he was on official duty.
The viral report should be disregarded in totality as it’s just but an old and recirculated image of an overzealous staff who posed with a rifle belonging to a sister agency’s staff in admiration and ignorance in 2018.
The said staff has since been punished according to existing maintainance of discipline of the Corps
The Acting Corps Marshal, Dauda Ali Biu while reacting to the image that is been recirculated has stated that officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps does not currently carry arms and advise members of the public should disregard the image been recirculated.
The public is by this publication called to desist from believing such fake image as the Corps continues in commiting itself to making the roads safer for all to use. (Flowerbudnews)
