Oladele hinted that an officer of the FRSC was hit by a driver while on duty, but the suspect was eventually overpowered and arrested.

He also disclosed that nine vehicles were apprehended “for driving against traffic and the drivers were issued notice of offence ticket for dangerous driving with a fine of N50,000 and the vehicles also impounded at the FRSC base.”

Oladele said, “An officer of the Corps, while enforcing traffic regulations on the Lagos-Ibadan  expressway around Mowe, was yesterday hit by a reckless driver of a Mazda bus marked KTU 485 XQ who was driving against traffic on the  Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

“The vehicle was arrested although the driver immediately ran away but was later arrested. The  injured officer was taken to the hospital for medical treatment and is in stable condition. The vehicle was also impounded and deposited at the FRSC base.

“In  another development on the Abeokuta-Ifo-Lagos expressway, attempts by some security operatives to arrest some suspected criminals led to a breach in security which impeded traffic on the expressway around Ifo. The situation was eventually contained by armed security operatives and traffic restored.”
