Man who knocked down FRSC official arraigned in court
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) said it has charged the driver, who reportedly knocked down one of its officials to court for prosecution. It was reported on Wednesday that a driver was arrested by the FRSC for allegedly knocking down one of its officials on Tuesday around Sagamu Interchange, Ogun State.
According to the Ogun FRSC spokesperson, Florence Okpe, the “FRSC Marshal on duty was knocked down by the reckless driver who drove a Toyota Camry car, with registration number, KRD836FT.”
Okpe, while giving update on the incident, said: “The reckless driver of the ash-colored Toyota Camry Car with registration number KRD836FT, has been charged to court. The driver on Tuesday around the Sagamu Interchange knocked down an FRSC operative while on patrol, after being stopped for violating a traffic infraction but in a desperate attempt to escape, knocked down the Marshal.
“The instrumentality of the National Vehicle Identification Scheme was deployed to track the driver who initially escaped by running away, though abandoned his vehicle.”
Okpe informed that two road crashes occurred in Ogun yesterday, adding that no life was lost in the accidents.
“Motorists should plan their journeys to accommodate additional travel time at the various construction zones where road lanes have narrowed, due to the construction activities of the major construction companies rehabilitating the Benin-Ore-Ijebu Ode-Sagamu and the Lagos-Ibadan Expressways,” she said.
