The sector commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps in Imo State, Evarestus Ebeniro, on Tuesday said 35 motorists had been arrested by his command for trying to induce his officers.
Addressing newsmen at the secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists in Owerri, the sector commander said his command had zero tolerance for corruption.
He disclosed that the arrests made were only for the month of August.
Ebeniro said that his command had mapped out plans to deal with any officer found culpable of engaging in the such practice in the state.
He disclosed that the command was ready for the hazards of traffic gridlock associated with ember months, saying that the state government had helped to ease traffic by turning the roundabouts to intersections.
“Already, we have mapped traffic for the routes into Owerri which is enormous during Christmas. We will deploy men to flashpoints. We will partner with FERMA and other agencies to immediately clear broken down vehicles to ensure the flow of traffic.”
Ebeniro assured free flow of traffic and called on road users to drive carefully without the influence of alcohol and substance abuse.
