She said two teams had been dismissed in the past for bribery related offences, adding that discipline and integrity would continue to be the hallmark of the organisation.

She added that the ban on markets along highways was sacrosanct to the safety of drivers and citizens.

She stated that government cannot allocate markets along highways adding that since she took over as the sector commander in Taraba state, accidents drastically reduced.
