The Ogun Command of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) says it will begin a special seven-day patrol to check the excesses of motorists during the Eid-el-Fitri celebration.
Mr Clement Oladele, the Ogun Sector Commander of FRSC, made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Ota, saying the exercise would begin on Wednesday.
Oladele said that 1,000 personnel, including regular and special marshals, would be deployed across the state to ensure an accident-free celebration.
“Our men will be in Abeokuta, Sango-Ota, Ifo, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Ijebu-Ode, Sagamu to mention just a few places.
“We implore those driving vehicles without number plates to desist from such act because anyone caught will face the wrath of the law.
“Those who drive against traffic and use bad tyres will also face the full weight of the law,” Oladele said.
He felicitated with Muslim faithful on the forthcoming celebration and admonished them to be safety conscious. (NAN)
