Men of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Lagos State on Thursday, March 18 rescued a pregnant woman and her unborn baby.
Naija News understands that officers of the agency attached to the Oko-Afo Outpost, were on patrol along area K yesterday when a bus conveying the pregnant mother stopped a little distance away and logged a complain that a woman is on Labour.
Officials of the agency under the Lagos State Sector Command, however, were prompt to assist in transporting the woman with their patrol vehicle to the nearest hospital where she finally delivered the baby.
Confirming the event, the Sector Commander, Olusegun Ogungbemide in a statement through the FRSC Public Education Officer in Lagos, Route Commander Olabisi Sonusi, said that the assistance became imperative to save the life of the pregnant woman and the baby.

“We quickly used the patrol vehicle to convene her to the nearest hospital, and to the glory of God she delivered safely with a baby boy,” he said.
Ogungbemide in the statement reiterated that the agency will not relent on its determination to do anything that would safeguard the lives and property of Lagosians on the road.
