The Eleme Unit Command of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has flagged-off its easter patrol operations with major safety activities.

The operations also include distribution of safety handbills and leaflets to motorists and traffic control for easy traffic flow.

In an interview, the chairman, Eleme Local Government said he decided to partner with the FRSC to ensure safety of his people during the Easter and above all, because of his belief in road safety as a panacea for accident.
