The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) says it has acquired "122" from Airtel as its toll-free emergency line for public use.

In a statement on Friday in Abuja, the commission's Deputy Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, said that as a result, the code number is no longer for Airtel Customer Service.

"The attention of the public, especially Airtel mobile telephone subscribers, is hereby drawn to the fact that '122' has been allocated to the FRSC as emergency toll-free number.

"It has therefore ceased to be used by Airtel for its Customer Service," he said.

Kazeem further said the code was before now being congested by calls that were not emergency-related.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the FRSC also has "0700 2255 3772" as a 12-digit emergency line.
