The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Mr Osita Chidoka, has said that 100 officials of the commission have been dismissed from the service for corruption.
Chidoka made the disclosure in Port Harcourt on Wednesday while addressing officers and men of the commission as part of activities marking his tour of FRSC formations in the South South region.
The corps marshal, who was represented by Mr Danjuma Garba, the Deputy Corps Marshal in charge of Vehicles Administration, warned that officials of the commission should shun corrupt practices or face sanctions.
“Bribe money is blood money,” Chidoka said, while reiterating FRSC’s zero tolerance for corruption which it was known for.
He stated that the constitutional mandate of the FRSC was to save lives and that marshals should rally round the commission’s management to realise the mandate.
The corps marshal advised marshals to take care of and follow up accident victims to obtain information about their families.
He said the country had security challenges and advised officers to guard their utterances in order not to heat up the polity.(NAN)
