Following President Muhammadu Buhari’s extension of the current lockdown in Lagos, Ogun States, as well as the Federal Capital Territory Abuja for another 14 days effective from 11:59 Monday 13 April, 2020; the Corps Marshal Federal Road Safety Corps, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi has ordered Commanding Officers across the country to step up enforcement of measures put it place against the spread of coronavirus.

 
In a statement by Bisi Kazeem, the Corps Public Education Officer,  the Corps Marshal’s directive is to reiterate the commitment of the Federal Riad Safety Corps towards sustaining existing collaborations with the Federal and State Governments in the fight against the ravaging Coronavirus. 
He added that the  alarming upsurge in deaths and spread of the virus across the globe which the Federal Government is working round the clock to subdue in Nigeria, is not an operation the Corps is ready to treat with kids gloves.  
“As such, the Corps Marshal’s order to Commanding Officers is to ensure the full utilisation of the work force through effective deployment of personnel to arrest without hesitation, any motorist who contravenes the National Order on stay at home.
Oyeyemi also ordered that except the vehicles and the occupants are accredited essential workers with proof of identification, “Commanding Officers must ensure that the vehicles are impounded and the occupants handed over to the Police for prosecution in the Court of Law for contravening the Presidential Order on restrictions, social distance and stay at home.” 
While warning citizens to comply with the restriction order or face the wrath of the law, he also advised essential workers who might be tempted to compromise with the physical distance directives in vehicles to restrain from such as the virus does not discriminate nor spare anybody irrespective of class or profession.
