Ahead of the yuletide season, the Delta State Police Command has flag-off December Operation Traffic Control Management to ensure that the high way is safer for commuters especially for those travelling to the eastern part of the country from Asaba, the Delta State capital.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr Zanna Ibrahim Mohammed who was aptly represented by the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Operations, Mr Undie Adie while flagging-off the DOTCM Thursday at the head bridge disclosed that the Command has also concluded plans to establish a mobile court at the Asaba end of River Niger Bridge.

The CP said the aim is to arrest and prosecute traffic offenders plying the ever busy Asaba-Onitsha High ways.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Zanna Ibrahim, disclosed this in Asaba yesterday when he flag-off ‘December Operation Traffic Control Management’ put in place by his Command to ensure easy free-flow of traffic from Asaba, Delta State to the Eastern part of the country.

He said the police have met with the authorities of the Ministry of Justice for the take-off of the Mobile Court, “this Christmas period to decongest the roads”.

According to the CP, the police is liaising with other sister agencies to man the both sides of the roads to control the deviant drivers for easy movement of traffic.

“from our previous experiences there have always been gridlock due to traffic coming into the eastern part but the programme is to ensure that there is free-flow of traffic and manage U-turn effectively”, the police boss said.

He hinted that traffic always build-up in high ways because some travellers are in haste, compelling drivers recklessness in a bit to beat the traffic.

Mr Ibrahim advised passengers to be very careful with the drivers to ascertain that they did not drink before entering the road.
