The Federal Road Safety Corp(FRSC) has again informed the general public that it is not an arms-bearing organisation as it has not yet been authorized by the government to bear arms.
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 do not currently carry arms and advised that members of the public should disregard the image been recirculated.
Federal Road Safety Corps wishes to inform the general public that personnel of the Commission has not started carrying guns or any other firearms whether on patrol or on any other official duty.
This information has become very pertinent following the image of an operative who was captured on camera carrying firearms 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 the existing maintenance of discipline of the Corps.
The public is by this publication called to desist from believing such fake images as the Corps continues to commit itself to make the roads safer for all to use.
