The Federal Road Safety Corps on Wednesday ordered an investigation into the assault of a motorist by a patrol team in a viral video.
The FRSC disclosed this in a statement signed by the Assistant Corps Marshal, Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, and made available on its Twitter page.
The statement read, “The Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps, Dauda Ali Biu, has directed the immediate recall of the patrol team that was captured on camera behaving in a manner tantamount to incivility against a member of the public within Egbeda Unit Command general operational area.
“The provocative act as captured on camera is a complete contravention of the Federal Road Safety Corps’ standard operating procedures for officers on patrol operations.
“In that regard, the Corps Marshal has directed the Corps Intelligence Office as well as the Corps Provost Office to commence, with immediate effect, a full and comprehensive investigation into the entire circumstances that propelled the officer into the uncivil act and make necessary recommendations for swift administrative action.”
In a video that emerged on Tuesday, an FRSC officer has been captured hitting a motorist who confronted him for allegedly damaging his car windscreen in Osun State.
