Following the viral video of some officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) disrespecting a member of the public at the Egbeda Unit Command general operational area in Oyo state, the Corp Marshall, Dauda Biu, on Wednesday, ordered the recall of the patrol team.
The development was made known in a statement signed by the Corps Spokesperson, Bisi Kazeem.
“The Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps, Dauda Biu has directed the immediate recall of the patrol team that was captured on camera behaving in a manner tantamount to incivility against a member of the public within Egbeda Unit Command general operational area”, Kazeem stated in the statement.
“The provocative act as captured on camera is a complete contravention of the FRSC standard operating procedures for officers on patrol operations.
“In that regard, the Corps Marshal has directed the Corps Intelligence Office as well as the Corps Provost Office to commence with immediate effect, a full and comprehensive investigation into the entire circumstances that propelled the officer into the uncivil act and make necessary recommendations for swift administrative action.
“He stated that FRSC is an ISO-certified organisation that does not condone indiscipline or compromise standards when it comes to rendering service to the public. As such all necessary disciplinary actions recommended will be administered appropriately”, he assured.
