No fewer than 97 personnel of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) are said to have been deployed to the nooks and crannies of Taraba State.
This according to the Sector Commander, Selina Williams, is to ensure adequate compliance to road safety rules during and after the Sallah celebration slated for Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Commandant who made this known today in Jalingo, Taraba, said the personnel have not only been dispatched across the state but have as well commenced patrol in all the major roads spread across the state.
According to her, “we have deployed seventy-seven of our personnel to every part of the state to ensure accident-free Sallah celebration”.
While twenty-five officers were said to have been deployed seventy-two marshals have kickstarted patrol across the various routes linking in and outside the state, she said.
More to the preparations, thirty-eight special marshals and two ambulances, have been put on patrol to contain any road mishaps that may occur during the celebration.
While urging road users to adhere strictly to COVID-19 precautionary measures, the need for them to eschew acts capable of causing road accidents, she believed can no longer be overemphasized.
