Road marshals licensed to use guns

 Road marshals licensed to use guns

The era of bandits and robbers controlling the highways would soon be a thing of the past as the officers of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) are licensed to use arms.

Kingsley Agomoh, Assistant Corps Marshal, Corps Project Implementation Office, revealed on Thursday, that the agency has gotten the nod of the Federal government to carry arms.

Agomoh disclosed this, during a seminar organized by the Bureau of Public Reforms.

He was speaking on why the corps officials have not commenced night highway patrols.

He said personnel would require specialised training on firearms handling before starting night patrols.

“It is one of the reasons we have not started work at night“, Agomoh said while answering questions on traffic management at night.

He however assured that the FRSC has upgraded its devices and facilities to handle traffic emergencies and save lives.
