The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Anambra has deployed 490 personnel, assisted by 620 Special Marshals, to ensure free flow of traffic and rescue operations during the Eld-el-Fitri celebration.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Federal Government on Monday declared Wednesday and Thursday as public holidays to celebrate the Eld-el-Fitri.
Boyi said the deployment became necessary due to high vehicular movements, which he added, usually lead to gridlock, obstructions, road crashes, insecurity and road infractions.
Boyi said the command had also deployed operational vehicles, tow trucks and ambulances to clear any obstruction and to administer to emergency cases across the state.
“As a lead agency in traffic management, the FRSC Anambra, in collaboration with other sister agencies, will ensure a safer motoring environment during this Eld-el-Fitri celebration,” he said.
“The Corps will not tolerate any form of infractions, such as speeding, dangerous driving, use of phone while driving, overloading, use of rickety vehicles, illegal use of spy number plates and others.
