FRSC Demotes Officers And Prosecutes Naked Tricycle Rider Who Was Assaulted In Viral Video

The two Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) involved in a public brawl which was captured in a viral video, have been demoted

The naked tricycle rider who stood on the bonnet of the FRSC’s patrol vehicle during the incident which happened in Benin, Edo State has also been charged to court. 

The case against the driver was filed on July 22 before Magistrate Ojehumen at the Evbuoriaria Magistrate Court 8, Sapele road, Benin and it was gathered that he pleaded not guilty to the 2 count charge bordering on breach of public peace and malicious damage of FRSC Patrol Vehicle.

A statement released by FRSC spokesperson Bisi Kazeem, read; 

“The Federal Road Safety Corps has commenced legal action against the erring tricycle rider who was seen destroying an FRSC patrol vehicle in a viral video recorded along Sapele road Benin, Edo state.  While the disciplinary panel constituted at the instance of the Corps Marshal that conducted the investigation into the incident recommended that the 7-man patrol team involved in the incident be sanctioned with the award of loss of seniority and reduction in rank.”

“During the proceedings, the defendant pleaded not guilty to a 2 count charge bordering on breach of public peace and malicious damage of FRSC Patrol Vehicle. The Counsel to the defendant eventually applied for bail which was granted by the Court, and the case was adjourned to 5 August, 2020 for further hearing.”

“The Corps Marshal has further directed the redeployment of the affected FRSC staff from their present Command in addition to the reduction in rank that was awarded by the Disciplinary Panel against the affected personnel having been investigated and found liable of patrol misconduct, in civility, unprofessional and unethical behaviour towards a road traffic offender; acts that contradict the patrol operational ethics of the Corps.”
