He also decried incessant attacks on its personnel and operational tools during the unrest in the country.

“This includes Operational and other vehicles, damaging of sundry structures and massive looting of valuables of FRSC formations including Drivers license Centres.
“No life of any staff had been lost. A staff sustained an injury at Benin toll gate unit command and currently receiving treatment.
“Some of the items stolen and burnt in Aba South DLC are computers, printers, chairs, tables, Air conditioners, laptops, files, and fans among others.
