    Nigerian road safety agency to set up 201 mobile courts for traffic offenders

    APA – Lagos (Nigeria)

    Nigeria’s Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) says that it plans to set up 201 mobile courts to try traffic offences across the country during the Christmas and New Year celebrations.

    The Corps Marshal of the FRSC, Mr. Boboye Oyeyemi, told journalists on Thursday in Abuja that the decision was in line with the directive of the Federal Executive Council that relevant agencies must ensure smooth movement of persons and goods during the period.

    Oyeyemi said that the commission was putting adequate measures in place and setting machinery in motion to achieve the goal.

    Local media reports quoted Oyeyemi as saying that that the commission has divided the country into 52 corridors and that the commission would deploy 21,000 personnel and 1,000 vehicles on the roads.

    According to him, there will be 40 road camps across the nation when they begin the one month exercise, which will last from December 15 to January 15, 2019.
