The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) says it has deployed 330 personnel and four ambulances ahead of President Muhammadu Buhari’s two-day working visit to Jigawa, beginning from Monday.
The FRSC Sector Commander in the state, Mr Angus Ibezim, made this known in Dutse on Saturday.
Ibezim said that the personnel include 70 officers, 205 marshals and 55 special marshals.
The sector commander added that 15 patrol vehicles and two heavy duty towing trucks are also prepared for the president’s visit.
According to him, the personnel will be stationed at strategic locations and other flash points to control traffic, crowd and conduct rescue mission in case of any eventuality.
