The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has cautioned its officers against chasing erring motorists no matter the traffic offence committed.
Spokesperson of the Corps, Bisi Kazeem, gave the warning in a telephone interview with News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, agency in Lagos on Saturday, April 13.
Kazeem, who was reacting to media reports of an accident on Friday, April 12 in Ibadan following a chase by FRSC officers, noted that the Corps Marshal of the FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi, frowned at the incident.
In his words:
“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.
