The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) said it dismissed 62 officers found to be involved in corrupt practices at various times this year.
The FRSC corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, who disclosed this when he interacted with news men, in Abuja said that the dismissal of the officers was part of the effort to rid the corps of corruption.
“Those involved are 14 officers and 48 marshals with several others receiving various degrees of punishment in accordance with the provisions of the FRSC regulations on discipline.”
He said that the collaboration with the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and the State Security Service (SSS) resulted in the investigation of 172 officials.
“I wish to use this opportunity to urge members of the public not to hesitate to report any wrongdoing by the FRSC personnel for proper disciplinary actions, as the corps will not condone bribery and corruption from any of its personnel.”
Boboye Oyeyemi said that the agency will not condone bribery and corruption within its ranks.
According to him, FRSC is the first government agency to collaborate with the Akin Fadeyi Foundation and MacArthur – both non-governmental organisations (NGOs) – for the launch of Flag-IT, an application developed for reporting corruption cases.
