The Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, has said that its personnel have not started carrying guns or any other fire arms whether on patrol or any other official duty.
The Agency said the 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 management urged the public to disregard the viral report 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 being recirculated states that officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps does not currently carry arms and advised members of the public to disregard the image.
“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.” It advised.
