FRSC arrests 63 motorists for violating social distancing order in Oyo State

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Oyo State Command, has arrested no fewer than 63 motorists for violating social distancing order due to overloading of persons.

The state FRSC Sector Commander, Mrs Chukwurah Uche, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan on Thursday.

Uche said that the command would continue to ensure the enforcement of the Federal Government order on social distancing on both private and commercial vehicles to curtail spread of coronavirus.

The sector commander said that the men and officers of the command regularly went on patrol to check for vehicles that were overloaded, especially in persons.

The sector commander further said that the command would not accept partial compliance with the order and would not relent in arresting the violators until the order was fully obeyed by motorists in the state.

She said that the possibility of spreading the virus might be high as long as vehicles were overloaded.

The sector commander called on motorists and other Nigerians to obey the order on social distancing, use of protective equipment and other protocols against COVID-19 as laid down by Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).
