The Edo State Command of the Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC) has arrested a motorist identified as Lucky Omomeyen, for allegedly driving away with officer after his arrest for violating trafficking rules., pub-3120625432113532, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

It was gathered that the operative flagged down a Toyota Camry while on road patrol but instead of stopping for the officer, he attempted to hit him with his car and in the process jumped and hanged on the car burnet.

The driver was alleged to have driven away with the officer hanging on his burnet and was able to jump down when traffic slowdown the vehicle.

The driver was said to have maneuvered his vehicle and   escaped arrest but was later arrested several days after the incident.

The State Sector Commander of the FRSC, Paul Okpe, who confirmed the incident, said the driver committed the offence on April 19 but was arrested after six day after committing the offence.

“The officer was on patrol at Ramat Park carrying out their normal duties when a motorist driving a Toyota Camry was flags down and in the process he nearly hit the operative and he had to jump on the burnet to avoid being hit”.

“Instead of him to park properly but because he had ulterior motives, he drove with the official hanging on his burnet for some distance before the officer was able to get down after the vehicle slowdown for traffic  but the driver  was able to escape”.

He said working with the Nigeria police and deploying its national vehicle insurance scheme, they were able to arrest  driver after, adding that he has been handed over to the police and has been charged to court.

Okpe called on motorist within the state to ensure that they work collectively with the corps so that the road can be safer for all to use.
