The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has threatened to arrest masquerades causing traffic gridlock or accidents during the Christmas and New Year festivities.

Kehinde Adeleye, zonal commanding officer RS5 Benin city, announced this during the commission’s ember months campaign in Onitsha, Anambra state, on Thursday.

Adeleye said there were cases in the past when masquerades engaged in acts which resulted in gridlock, road crashes and inconvenience.

Describing the ember months as a season of masquerades, “This time we may have to arrest such masquerades.”

Adeleye, who delivered the speech of Boboye Oyeyemi, FRSC corps marshal, warned motorists against flouting traffic rules and embarking on night journeys.

He thanked the government of Anambra for its support for FRSC and pledged the commitment of the corps to ensuring safe motoring environment in the state.

In his address, Andrew Kumapayi, sector commander in Anambra, said the FRSC is ready to ensure safe motoring environment in the state.

Kumapayi said the command had already identified the strategic routes in the state and deployed personnel to effectively check such areas.

The campaign was declared open by Willie Obiano, the governor, who was represented by Nkem Okeke, his deputy.
