He said the Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, in view of the recommendation, directed the tailoring unit of the Corps to begin immediate and speedy production of face mask.

“The distribution of customised face masks for officers and Marshals of the Corps nationwide has started due to the critical role the Corps plays in the ongoing enforcement of the national restriction order,” he said.

Kazeem noted that FRSC personnel being at the front line in the enforcement of the presidential restriction order on COVID-19, had every tendency of coming in contact with different categories of people, including carriers of the infectious virus.
