FRSC Boss Boboye Oyeyemi Absolves Officials Of Misconduct, Set To Prosecute Alleged Assaulted Driver
The Corps Marshal of Federal Road Safety Commission, (FRSC), Boboye Oyeyemi, has on Tuesday absolved officials of the commission that allegedly assaulted driver of a moving vehicle in Abuja.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Public Education Officer of the FRSC, Bisi Kazeem, in Abuja.
The statement reads:
“An investigation panel revealed that a patrol team flagged down a driver for routine checks.
“When his car was to be impounded for running foul of traffic laws, a female staff was attached to the offender’s vehicle.
“She was to accompany the vehicle to a nearby FRSC office for other necessary processes as contained in the operational procedure to be effected, but the driver sped away with the female staff.
“A patrol team, obviously concerned about the motive of the fleeing driver, had to apply force to rescue the female operative.
“The manipulated video which the suspect released afterward only told one side of the story. The Corps is determined to follow through with the suspect’s prosecution as a deterrent,” the corps marshal said.
