The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has denied seeking the approval of the federal government for its officers to start bearing arms.

The Corps Public Education Officer of the FRSC, Assistant Corps Marshal Bisi Kazeem made the denial in a statement on Sunday.

According to him, the statement credited to the representative of the Corps Marshal at the Passing Out Parade of Cadets at the Nigerian Army Training Centre (NATRAC),  Kotangora, Niger State, does not reflect the current position of the Corps Marshal and the FRSC management.
He therefore urged members of the public to disregard the earlier information.
