About 70 Special Marshalls of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) serving in Kogi State have been relieved of their duties for non-performance and other acts of indiscipline.
The outgoing State Coordinator of the Special Marshall Command of the FRSC, Mr Joseph Solomon who stated this in Lokoja on Sunday while giving the account of his four-year stewardship said that the sack has reduced the number of special marshals in the state to 242 from 319.
Apart from the sack of the 70 marshals, he said that the entire Obajana Unit had also been scrapped for being inactive in road activities, non-attendance of meetings and non-payment of dues.
He said that the Command presently has 17 units of Special Road Marshalls spread across the three senatorial districts of the state, appealing to the FRSC to approve the establishment of more units for effective traffic control on all major streets of the state.
