Interstate travels: FRSC, Nigerian Army, DSS meet

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Zone 4, has emphasised the need to observe social distancing as interstate travels resume.

A statement on Thursday by Deputy Route Commander, Terry Hoomlong, said Zonal Commander Jonas Agwu, an Assistant Corp Marshal, had conferred with security agencies.

The Jos zone covers Plateau, Benue and Nasarawa states.

ACM Agwu visited the GOC 3 Armoured Division Nigerian Army, Jos, Maj.-Gen. Nuhu Angbazo, and the State Director of Department of State Services (DSS), Ibrahim Sale.

Apart from social distancing, FRSC vowed to also checkmate overloading of vehicles.

“Our patrol teams have been directed to enforce strictly approved protocol for travellers and transporters to promote safety and improve the health of travellers,” he said.

Agwu called for inter-agency collaboration to reduce crashes and improve security.

In his remarks, Angbazo described the FRSC as a leader in road traffic management in sub-Saharan Africa.

He promised to work with the agency to ensure maximum cooperation in areas of necessity.

Sale of the DSS urged the Corps to find remedy to the incessant road traffic crashes at Polo roundabout in Jos.

The official promised continuous collaboration with the FRSC.
