The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) says motorists who violate the lockdown order will be arrested and their vehicles impounded.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday extended the lockdown in the federal capital territory (FCT), Lagos and Ogun states for another two weeks.

In a statement on Tuesday, Boboye Oyeyemi, FRSC corps marshal, asked commanding officers across the country to step up enforcement of the lockdown measures.

Oyeyemi said this directive is “to reiterate the commitment of the Federal Road Safety Corps towards sustaining existing collaborations with the federal and state government in the fight against the ravaging coronavirus”.

He said officers will be deployed to arrest any motorist who contravenes the stay-at-home order.

“Except the vehicles and the occupants are accredited essential workers with proof of identification, commanding officers must ensure that the vehicles are impounded and the occupants handed over to the police for prosecution in the court of law for contravening the presidential order on restrictions, social distance and stay at home,” he said.

Oyeyemi also advised essential workers to comply with the social distance directive in vehicles “as the virus does not discriminate nor spare anybody irrespective of class or profession”.
