The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Boboye Oyeyemi, has ordered his men across the country to gear up the enforcement on restrictions and physical distancing amongst vehicle occupants.
He said this is to sustain the existing collaborations with the Federal and State Governments in the fight against the ravaging Coronavirus.
Mr Boboye asked officials to ensure adequate deployment of personnel on all routes. The Corps Marshal noted that as the Corps moves into the first week of the extension of phase one of the eased lockdown regime, personnel must show diligence and ensure total enforcement of all the measures in place.
He also sustained the initial order that no vehicle should be allowed to violate the directives as contained. According to him, except the vehicles and the occupants are accredited essential workers with proof of identification, Commanding Officers must ensure that the vehicles are impounded.
The FRSC added that the occupants handed over to the Police for prosecution in the Court of Law for contravening the Presidential Order on restrictions, social distance, and stay at home.
He, therefore, advised citizens to comply with the restriction order or face the wrath of the law. Boboye also advised essential workers who might be tempted to compromise with the social distance directives in vehicles to restrain from such as the Virus does not discriminate nor spare anybody irrespective of class or profession.
