Three persons out of the several people that attacked the Federal Road Safety Commission’s patrol team in Igbo-Ukwu, Anambra State, have been arrested by Anambra State Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police.
According to the Head, Media Relations and Strategy, FRSC, Bisi Kazeem, efforts are ongoing to effect more arrest towards the prosecution of the miscreants and the commercial motorcycle operators.
Reacting to the arrests, FRSC’s Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, commended the Inspector General of Police and also thanked the Anambra State Command, in particular, the Anambra State Special Anti-Robbery Squad that effected the arrest of the culprits.
Oyeyemi appreciated the promptness and diligence of the arrests and enjoined them to fish out others at large for prosecution, to serve as deterrent to others that might have such plans.
He also reiterated that the FRSC will no longer accept such actions as norm.
Boboye said the agency would continue to cooperate with appropriate agencies in the discharge of its statutory duties; and that the agency will no longer tolerate situations where its officials are harassed, victimised, beaten, assaulted or mobbed for whatever reasons.
