FRSC vows to arrest masquerades obstructing traffic during yuletide 

The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has said that it would arrest masquerades causing traffic congestion or accidents during the Christmas and New Year festivities.

Zonal Commanding Officer RS5 Benin City, Kehinde Adeleye, said this during its Ember months campaign in Onitsha, Anambra State on Thursday.

Adeleye said there were cases in the past when masquerades engaged in acts which resulted in traffic crashes and inconvenience.

He thanked the government of Anambra for its support of the FRSC and restated the commitment of the corps to ensuring safe motoring environment in the state.
