Yesterday, there was a viral video trending on social media about FRSC team and a young lady moving with a car.
FRSC officers were trying to stop her car but she didn’t stop till they blocked her, after she dropped from the car, the leader of this FRSC team was using rough languages on her by saying, “God Punish you” and they even removed her plate number immediately.
This lady explained that, the officer who was telling her to wine down the glass didn’t protect him self with face mask, that’s why she didn’t follow the instructions to wine down.
This team was reported to FRSC and today, they announced the Sanction on them on their Twitter page that,
“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
