The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has vowed to dismiss from service any of its personnel found extorting motorists.
Corps Public Education Officer, Mr Bisi Kazeem gave the warning in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Wednesday.
Kazeem was reacting to the recent arrest of 37 FRSC operatives for alleged extortion of motorists on the highways.
NAN reports that a team comprising the FRSC, ICPC and DSS made the arrest of the erring personnel recently.
The FRSC management had in a complaint to ICPC said the incidents of extortion were rife in six states; Kaduna, Bauchi, Abia, Rivers, Kogi and Ogun.
Kazeem, however, said that the magnitude of the penalty would depend on the gravity or weight of the evidence and exhibit against personnel involved in the act.
According to him, this necessitated the collaboration with the ICPC and DSS.
He said, adding that the exercise would be sustained in order to rid the corps of bad eggs.
