The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in Niger has deployed 641 personnel, 25 patrol vehicles and three ambulances to ensure a smooth flow of traffic and safety during the Eid-el-Kabir.

Mr Joel Dagwa, the FRSC Sector Commander in the state, made this known in an interview with the Nigeria News Agency on Thursday in Minna.

Dagwa said that erring motorists would be apprehended and sanctioned.

“There will be more mobile courts just to ensure qualified and dully certified drivers and vehicles ply the highways during and after the festivities in the state,” he said.

He said that the personnel had been deployed to the Minna-Bida, Mokwa-Suleja, Tafa-Kaduna, Lambata-Agaie, and Lapai-Bida highways.

Other strategic areas, he said, include the Suleja and Minna– Kontagora highways.

“We have stationed one heavy duty truck at Mokwa-Jebba highway.

”Our special patrol for the season will not spare drivers without driver’s licence, vehicle particulars, under-aged drivers and those with worn-out tyres.

”We will be visible on all the major federal highways to ensure that road users obey traffic rules and regulations during and after the festivities,” he said.

Dagwa called on commercial drivers and other motorists to put their vehicles in good condition before embarking on any journey during and after the celebrations.
