The Delta State Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, has vowed to unmask fraudsters using the names of the corps to sell stickers to shuttle bus drivers in the state.
The Delta State Sector Commander, Bassey Eshiet, in a statement, said the commission is not in partnership with anyone over the alleged sales of stickers.
According to him, shuttle bus drivers should refuse to be scammed through such a scheme cooked up by extortionists.
He said the “unwholesome” practice is against the mandate of the corps.
“It is extortion of money from shuttle bus drivers through sales of stickers to them, claiming to be FRSC stickers and that it will protect them from arrest if traffic law violation is established.
“The motoring public and road users are by this development advised to obey all traffic laws and regulations, desist from offering bribes to FRSC operatives, avoid speeding, overloading, use of unsafe tyres and driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
“The corps will soon commence a joint operation codenamed “Operation Sanitise Asaba-Benin, and Asaba-Onitsha Highways of Traffic lnfractions,” Eshiet informed.
