“I want to express deep regret over the unfortunate incidence that happened within the period of the EndSARS protests.

“From the information that I have, FRSC in about eight commands plus the FCT suffered great losses.

“I have also looked at what the corps has been able to procure so far.

“I want to assure you that we will look into your plight, especially the need to provide  operational vehicles so that you can meet the targets set by the UN resolutions on safety in our country,’’ Mustapha said.
