Again, a Patrol team of the Operatives of the Federal Road Safety Corps(FRSC) came under attack by a motorist plying  the Lagos - Ibadan  Expressway, with the team losing two GSM phone handsets during the assault.

The motorist driving a black Toyota Corolla saloon car marked  KTU 828 CF was helped by some loitering miscreants who he quickly recruited to join in the assault on the FRSC Patrol Team.

The incident occurred on Sunday afternoon at the Mowe - Deeper Life turning corridor of the Lagos - Ibadan Expressway, creating panic and momentary traffic gridlock.

The FRSC Sector Commander for the Ogun State Sector Command, Clement Oladele, who confirmed the assault said the incident occurred when the Patrol team detailed to control traffic, attempted to impound the vehicle of an unruly motorist who flouted traffic rules.

Oladele said further that the incident has been reported to the Police, adding that there is an on - going manhunt for the offending motorist.

"A Patrol  Team detailed on traffic control at the Deeper Life turning around the Mowe axis of  the Lagos - Ibadan Expressway, were assaulted by a driver of a  Toyota Corolla saloon car with registration number  KTU 828 CF.

"This driver  violated traffic laws by driving against traffic and was stopped by the FRSC operatives,   in the process, he attacked one of the Marshals, questioning why he should be stopped for driving against traffic.

" While  the Marshal was subtly   explaining  the danger of his action ,  the unruly  driver instigated some miscreants  nearby, who joined him in attacking and obstructing  the entire patrol  team from discharging their duties.

"With the aid of these miscreants the offender ( driver )was able to escape arrest. The team lost two telephone handsets  in the process.The case was incidented at the  Mowe Police Station. A manhunt has also be launched to effect his arrest," he stated.
