No Plans to Abolish Patrol Points in South East, Says FRSC

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has officially refuted claims regarding the abolition of patrol points in Abia, Imo, Ebonyi, and Enugu states. This clarification was issued by FRSC Public Education Officer, Olusegun Ogungbemide, in response to circulating reports suggesting the removal of these patrol points.


Contrary to the reports from June 21, which indicated that the Zonal Commanding Officer of Zone 9 Headquarters in Enugu, Uche Chukwurah, had announced the end of static patrol points in the South-East states, Ogungbemide emphasized that the information was misinterpreted.


During his initial visit to the Abia FRSC command in Umuahia, Chukwurah discussed a transition from static checkpoints to mobile patrol operations. This shift was mistakenly construed as the abolition of patrol points in the South-East region.


Ogungbemide clarified that Chukwurah’s statements were misquoted and stressed that there was no specific target to abolish patrol points solely in the southeastern states. The FRSC’s ongoing operational adjustments are intended to enhance road safety across Nigeria, not just in one region.

“The reports suggesting that the FRSC plans to abolish patrol points in the South-East are completely misleading. These operational changes are part of a nationwide strategy to improve the effectiveness of our personnel and should not be misinterpreted as an abandonment of our presence in any specific area,” Ogungbemide stated.


He further highlighted that the FRSC is committed to upgrading its operational strategies, which include equipping personnel with functional operational vehicles, ambulances, and motorbikes, as well as providing additional training for efficient rescue services. These measures aim to extend daily patrol coverage and strengthen the FRSC’s presence on the road network.


The overarching goal of these efforts is to enhance road safety and support other security agencies through the reliable processing of driver and vehicle databases.
