The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has sanctioned the officers involved in a viral video, which showed them assaulting a lady over her refusal to stop at a check point.
We earlier reported the mild drama after a motorist who refused to stop for Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) officers without face masks in Abuja.
In the shocking video, an officer can be seen on her bonnet as she attempted to drive away from a check point.
She was forced to stop, and the team of FRSC marshalls caught up with her.
They immediately went on to tear her plate number, as one of the officers also attempted to beat her up.
Reacting to the shocking video, the FRSC said the team were unprofessional and uncivil in carrying out their duty.
The FRSC also revealed that the entire team is being queried and sanctioned in accordance with FRSC relevant regulations on discipline.
FRSC INITIATES IMMEDIATE SANCTIONS ON PATROL TEAM INVOLVED IN THE TRENDING VIDEO WITH A MOTORIST DURING ENFORCEMENT OF STAY AT HOME ORDER
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
