…Urges FRSC, Police to clamp down on those using sirens illegally
By Abiodun OBA
The House of Representatives has noted that criminal elements have taken undue advantage to unleash fear and terror on the society with the indiscriminate use of siren.
The House has therefore urged the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) and the Nigerian Police Force to clamp down on those using sirens illegally nationwide by enforcing the law on its indiscriminate use on Nigerian roads.
The resolution followed the adoption of a motion by Jesse Onuakalusi (LP-Lagos) at the plenary in Abuja on Wednesday.
Onuakalusi, in the motion entitled: “Need to Check the Abuse of the Use of Siren on Nigeria’s Roads,” noted that the abuse had negatively impacted on appropriate security assessment, adding that it was now difficult to distinguish between the officials entitled to sirens and imposters.
The House further mandated the Committees on Federal Road Safety Commission and Police Affairs to ensure compliance.
