The Police AIG in-charge of Zone 5, Benin, Salihu Argungun, has promised to collaborate with the FRSC to tackle traffic congestion on major Edo routes during the end of the year festivities.

The FRSC’s zone comprises Edo, Delta and Bayelsa while the Police Zone 5 includes Edo, Delta and Anambra States.
Argungun expressed gratitude to Olaniran and his team for the visit and assured that both the Police and the FRSC would collaborate as security agencies to address the issue of traffic gridlock in the state.
The AIG commanded the commander for his reform in the FRSC.
Earlier, Olaniran expressed appreciation to the Police for the cardinal relationship the corps had enjoyed from them and sued for further collaboration with a view to making the roads accident-free during the yuletide.
