The Federal Road Safety Corps said it would deploy 100 personnel on a daily basis to control traffic on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway as road diversions and construction works resume.

According to the FRSC’s Zonal Commanding Officer, Zone RS2, comprising Lagos and Ogun, Mr Samuel Obayemi, men of the corps would always be on ground to manage traffic on the road. 

He said that the corps would deployed officers from Ojodu, Ibafo, Mowe, and Sagamu commands to address all the fears of motorists.

He advised motorists and commuters using the highway not to panic, urging them to be patient and obey traffic rules and officers.

“We are prepared for the diversion in the zone. On a daily basis, we shall be deploying not less than 100 staff to manage the traffic and ensure that no one sleeps on the road.

“We will make sure that at any point where there is diversion, our men are on ground to control traffic.

“We will make sure that people don’t run into the barriers that are put there. No one should be afraid at all.

“Rather, all motorists should resolve to obey the traffic officers and in good time, everyone will get to his or her destinations.

“We are fully prepared and it is something that we are used to,” he said.
