Oyeyemi recently revealed this in Asaba, briefly after he inspected the FRSC annex office along the Onitsha-Asaba expressway which was razed by hoodlums on Oct. 21 during the protest.
According to him, FRSC would not be deterred from carrying out its statutory duties despite the terrible incidents that trailed the recent protests.
He added that during the nationwide protests, the FRSC lost about 27 operational vehicles, while about 14 others were vandalized by hoodlums.
His words, “A lot of lessons have been learnt, but we are back on the road. We have to do our work.
“What happened here and across the nation during the protest is quite unfortunate. But we have to move on.
“During the nationwide protests, the FRSC lost about 27 operational vehicles, while about 14 others were vandalised by hoodlums.”
“As you can see, the whole place has been razed. We have to fix it back. The building is a rented property.”

The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) is a Nigerian Police Force unit under the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department headed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police Anthony Ogbizi. Since 2012, SARS has come under controversy for being linked to acts of extortion, torture, framing and blackmail.
The Special Anti-Robbery Squad was founded in 1992 by former police commissioner Simeon Danladi Midenda. The major reason SARS was formed was when Col. Rindam, a Nigerian Army Colonel was killed by police officers at a checkpoint in Lagos.
SARS is one of the 14 units in the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department which was established to detain, investigate and prosecute people involved in crimes like armed robbery, kidnapping and other forms of crimes.
During its formation the Special Anti-Robbery Squad was known to operate covertly. SARS operatives were not allowed to wear police uniform, publicly carry guns or have walkie-talkies. They were given unmarked vehicles with sometimes no license plates or private plate numbers during duty.
