The Ogun sector command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) says it will deploy breathalysers to test motorists to detect those who drive under the influence of alcohol during the Sallah festival.

Sector commander Ahmed Umar stated this on Tuesday in Ota, Ogun. According to him, motorists who test positive for alcohol will be subjected to further tests for other drugs.

He disclosed that the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) would be engaged for this purpose during the festival.

“We are therefore appealing to motorists to avoid drink driving during and after the festive period. People should not indulge in drinking and driving at the same time to prevent unnecessary loss of life,” Mr Umar explained.

He also mentioned that vehicles impounded because the drivers violated traffic rules and regulations would not be released until after the Sallah festival.

The sector commander added that the FRSC would collaborate with the police to check road traffic violations on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

“We are also collaborating with the navy and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps to maintain sanity during the Sallah festival on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Sagamu -Ijebu Ode-Ore Expressway,” Mr Umar said.
