EHIME ALEX, Lagos
The Federal Road Safety Corps has ordered immediate sanction of its patrol team caught in an unprofessional conduct with a motorist while enforcing the stay at home order.
Corps Marshal Boboye Oyeyemi gave the directive, according to a statement on Thursday signed by Bisi Kazeem, FRSC’s corps commander, public education officer.
Oyeyemi’s order contained that the entire team be queried and sanctioned in accordance with FRSC’s relevant regulations on discipline.
The statement reads:
The attention of the Federal Road Safety 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;
1. That the Corps Marshal, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi has ordered the immediate withdrawal of the entire FRSC Team involved in the unprofessional and uncivil act.
2. That 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 .
3. That 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 and comply with all directives on stay at home and social distance and ensure that they cooperate with security operatives detailed to enforce the Presidential Orders.
