Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State has warned officers of the Federal Road Safety Corps in the state to stop extorting money from motorists.
He gave the warning in a speech at the distribution of the second batch of 655 tricycles and 154 commercial buses as part of the state’s economic empowerment programme to reduce unemployment.
The governor said he would collaborate with the Bauchi State House of Assembly and the state Chief Judge to come up with executive orders to regulate law enforcement agencies operating in the state.
He said, “I want to call on law enforcing agencies like the Federal Road Safety Corps. I have noticed that sometimes, they stay within the town and they will just be collecting money from drivers; I will not allow that.”
