In the statement released this morning, FRSC said the tricycle rider resisted arrest by going naked. And that he even attacked one of its officers who in turn applied “commensurate force” during the attack.





The corps vowed to ensure that the erring tricycle rider is prosecuted. This the corps said is to serve as a deterrent to others. This is especially to those who might want to attack its personnel in future.

The Corps wishes to register its displeasure at the incessant abuse of its personnel and damage to its property across its formations nationwide by unruly people and warns that this, like other unwarranted attacks, is highly unacceptable and the Corps will do everything within its legal strength to ensure that this act does not go without due punishment under the law.

It is also disheartening that a section of the motoring public could criticize the Corps personnel who in self-defence, applied some commensurate force on the criminal in question in order to restrain him from the further attack on the unarmed personnel and damage to the patrol vehicle.
