The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) authorities have announced that a query has been issued to its officals who almost assaulted a lady for speeding off with a policeman on her car’s bonnet in Abuja.
It was reported earlier that Media personality Khalid Oshoke who shared the video, said the lady refused to wind down her window or park for the security operatives because they weren’t wearing facemasks.
In a statement released by the agency’s Public Education Officer Bisi Kazeem, it was gathered that the Corps Marshal, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi has ordered the immediate withdrawal of the entire FRSC Team involved in the unprofessional and uncivil act.
The statement reads;
The attention of the Corps has been adequately drawn to a video currently dominating the social media sphere about a motorist who had an encounter with FRSC Personnel in the course of carrying out the ongoing enforcement of Presidential/National directive on ‘ Stay At Home’
After a careful study and analysis of the video and what transpired in it, the Corps wishes to inform the public that the following proactive measures have been taken; The Corps Marshal, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi has ordered the immediate withdrawal of the entire FRSC Team involved in the unprofessional and uncivil act.
The action of the Officers involved in that episode is completely contrary to the Core Values and Operational Ethics of the Corps and the Corps frowns at it .
The Corps Marshal has directed that the entire team be queried and sanctioned in accordance with FRSC relevant regulations on discipline.
The public is therefore called to remain calm & comply with all directives on stay at home & social distance & ensure that they cooperate with security operatives detailed to enforce the Presidential Orders
