Easter: FRSC deploys 1,500 Marshals in Anambra

The Anambra Command of the Federal Road Safe­ty Corps (FRSC) says it will deploy no fewer than 1,500 marshals to ensure effective pa­trol in the state during Easter celebration.
The Sector Commander, Mr Sunday Ajayi, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Awka that both of­ficers of the regular marshal and the Special Marshals would be deployed.
“We are going to have over 1,500 hands helping us, and that includes regular and special marshals. And we are hoping to enjoy the support of other agen­cies,’’ he said.
Ajayi said the command would also have expanded pa­trol, which includes working at night, holding mobile courts and intensifying advocacy and enforcement.
He said the command was considering the increased traf­fic at night and rush during the day, and had strategised to en­sure sanity on the roads in the state.
According to the sector com­mander, there shall be decon­gestion activities to clear the road of broken-down and dam­aged vehicles causing obstruc­tion on the highways.
“Our expectation this Easter is to have a stress-free traffic in Anambra and to achieve that, we shall mobilise all that we have, personnel, logistics wise and the stakeholders too.
