Christmas: How NAF, FRSC ensured safety of commuters

As Nigerians celebrate Christmas, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) and Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC) embarked on aerial patrol to monitor traffic and other activities along some critical highways in the Country.

NAF spokesperson, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, said in a statement the NAF began a patrol in conjunction with FRSC December 23, 2019, with a NAF EC-135 helicopter conducting surveillance along the Abuja-Lokoja Expressway.

“On December 24, 2019, aerial patrols were also conducted along the Lagos-Shagamu-Ore Road alongside personnel from the Lagos State Sector of the FRSC,” he said.

“The exercise, which is being conducted in furtherance of the NAF’s constitutional role of providing military aid to civil authority, will also cover other routes to enable Nigerians embark on their lawful road travels without fear or undue traffic challenges during the Christmas and New Year celebrations.”
