According to him, the scheme was aimed at ensuring enhanced visibility and to guarantee the safety of all road users before, during and after the Eid-el Kabir celebration in Nigeria. “About 750 Patrol Vehicles, 120 Ambulances, 25 Tow Truck and over 200 Bikes would be on the road during the special operation that would commence on 16 to 25 July 2021 nation-wide,” he said. He said the corps had over the years developed the tradition of organising special patrol operations during festive periods. “Motorists must endeavour to avoid traffic violations and remain conscious of their safety to avoid not only arrest and prosecution by members of the Corps, but falling prey to avoidable road crashes. “The mission of the special operation is to ensure free flow of traffic, provide prompt rescue services and timely clearance of obstructions on all major roads and critical corridors across the country,” said Kazeem. He added that the Corps Marshal, FRSC, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, had directed commanding officers operating across various formations nationwide to ensure the effectiveness of the operations. Mobile courts would be in operation across for immediate dispensation of justice to traffic violators. He, however, appealed to motorists to obey all traffic rules and regulations and cooperate with FRSC personnel and other law enforcement agencies to avoid unnecessary conflict.
