The Federal Road Safety Corps has directed its staff to make sure that any vehicle violating the lockdown order is taken away.

FRSC tweeted about this on Tuesday, adding that it would step up the enforcement of the restrictions in the states where it is in force.

Recall that the president, Muhammadu Buhari had extended the stay-at-home order in Lagos, FCT and Ogun states for 14 days, going by the increasing numbers of the covid-19 cases in country.

“The Corps Marshal’s order to Commanding Officers is to ensure the full utilisation of the work force through effective deployment of personnel to arrest without hesitation, any motorist who contravenes the National Order on Stay at Home,” FRSC tweeted.

Furthermore, FRSC also said that only the vehicles conveying essential workers or services would be allowed passage but added that they must show proof of identification.

The Corps also urged essential workers and vehicles to comply with social distancing guidelines.

“Commanding Officers must ensure that the vehicles are impounded and the occupants handed over to the Police for prosecution in the Court of Law.”
