FG Approves Arms For FRSC Officers; Nigerians React

According to report by The Tribune, Federal government has approved arms-bearing for the men and officers of the Federal Road Safety Corps, following upsurge in violent attacks and killing of some of its operatives during legitimate duties.

This is coming on the sad revelation that the Corps has lost over 70 of its personnel in 2016 alone as a result of violent attacks by motorists at the course of duties on highways.

Corps Marshal and Chief Executive of FRSC, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, made this known on Friday in Abuja at the end of year management strategy session as a way to assess the Corps stewardship as well as ensuring effective service delivery.

He noted that the FRSC Establishment Act gives power to the corps to bear arms and that the FG had earlier approved that, with about 5,000 personnel already undergoing training on firearms.

Nigerians across the social media are have continued to react vehemently against the new act.
