“At times, the little fault we leave out might develop a big fault if the vehicle must have worked for several hours; leading to its unexpected breakdown on the highway and the built up traffic that will follow,” he said.

Toby said that the command would be working in collaboration with other “friendly sister security agencies” to ensure a smooth and successful operation this period.
