The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has on Saturday cautioned officers against arresting motorists.
Naija News reports that the corp cautioned its officers against chasing erring motorists no matter the traffic offence committed by the motorists.
The FRSC made this known while reacting to an accident that occurred on Friday, along Lagos-Ibadan expressway that was allegedly caused by the chase by the FRSC officers.
The FRSC Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, gave the warning in a telephone interview with the Newsmen and said that the Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, condemned the incident.
While reacting on the incident, Kazeem said; “The Corps Marshal, Mr Boboye Oyeyemi, condemned the act as it is our rule that officers should not chase any erring motorist.
“Rather the vehicle number should be taken and the offender will in no time be arrested through our drivers’ licence portal.
“As a paramilitary agency investigation must be carried out and if the officers are found guilty, they will be dealt with accordingly,” Kazeem said.
