ICPC, FRSC ARREST 15 ROAD SAFETY OFFICIALS FOR ALLEGED EXTORTION

15 officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps have been arrested during a joint security operation led by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission for allegedly extorting money from motorists on highways across the country.


The officials were arrested on August 12, 2021, simultaneously in Adamawa, Gombe, Ondo and Osun States, respectively.


The bribes were recovered from them during the enforcement of the sixth phase of ‘Operation Tranquility’ by officers of ICPC, FRSC and the Department of State Services.

This was contained in a statement by the ICPC spokesperson, Mrs Azuka Ogugua, on Thursday, in a statement titled, ‘ICPC, FRSC arrest 15 road safety officials for extortion of motorists.’


It said the operation, meant to bring an end to extortion of motorists and other unwholesome practices by some FRSC officials, resulted in the arrest of seven officials along the Jimeta Township routes and Yola Expressway in Adamawa State.


Also, the members of Operation Tranquility arrested four FRSC officials in Gombe State, along Gombe Township routes, while four others were arrested within Ikare Township routes in Ondo State.


The team noted that the officials would sometimes enter vehicles belonging to motorists to negotiate and collect the bribes to avoid being seen by passers-by as well as employ the services of local government revenue collectors as agents to cover their illicit acts.
