The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has called on the state judiciary to help in the speedy trial of erring motorists by constituting more mobile courts.
The Ekiti Sector Commander, Ms Elizabeth Akinlade, made the call on Monday, when she visited the state Acting Chief Judge, Justice John Adeyeye, in his office in Ado Ekiti.
Akinlade further appealed to the chief judge to post a legal officer, who would always help the commission during litigations.
She congratulated Adeyeye on his recent appointment and prayed for his successful tenure in office.
Responding, Adeyeye thanked the sector commander and her management for the visit, describing it as timely.
He assured the FRSC boss of the judiciary’s readiness to assist it whenever the need arose, adding that mobile courts had always been in existence and functional.
