FG Approves Arms-Bearing For Men And Officers Of FRSC

The Federal Government of Nigeria has approved arms-bearing for the officers and men of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), following an upsurge in violent attacks and killing of some of its operatives during official duties..

This is coming on the sad revelation that the Corps has lost over 70 of its road safety personnel in 2016 alone as a result of violent attacks by motorists at the course of duties on highways.

Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi , Corps Marshal and Chief Executive of FRSC made this known on Friday in Abuja at the end of year management strategy session as a way to assess the Corps stewardship as well as ensuring effective service delivery.

Dr. Oyeyemi noted that the FRSC Establishment Act gives power to the corps to bear arms and that the Federal  Government  had earlier approved that, with about 5,000 personnel already undergoing training on firearms.
