July 5, 2016 – Pictures: Angry Driver Hires Thugs To Beat Up FRSC Official In Yaba Lagos 

An official of Federal Road Safety Commission(FRSC) is currently recovering at the hospital after a group of thugs hired by an angry motorist beat him to stupor.

The unidentified FRSC official and two of his colleagues flagged down a speeding Toyota Camry car but the driver refuses to stop. They later gave him a hot chase and in the process, the driver accidentally knocked down a pedestrian.

To cut the long story short, the driver of the car being chased ordered his boys to beat the officials up at Jibowu area of Yaba Lagos.

Two of his colleagues managed to escape as this overzealous FRSC official got the beatings of life.

It was the timely intervention of street hawkers that saved him from being beaten to death.

The incident involving the driver of the Toyota Camry car with registration # MU780KJA happened around 9am on Sunday.

  1. Two wrongs! Heads should be made to roll here. The owner of that vehicle should be tracked down along with his boys and be made to bear the comensurate weight of the law that they had breached. Thank God that the number plate of the Camry was captured! As much as I hate what fate that was meted out on that FRSC official, I will also say that they violated their road safety ethics by chasing after the fleeing driver. They have been duely warned against this, and I am kind of surprised that they had flouted the directive. An univovled pedestrian has now been involved because of the disregard for the law on the part of those FRSC guys who should have been professional with their job.

  2. Metu i think you will say they should amend the law, when d law was passed that they frsc shud not chase any motor, u know our people will take that for granted coz no one will chase them and also they will be ready to knock down any frsc officer that get to their way. So its better to cancel the FRSC service on our road IF there will be no strong law to tackles reckless driving in our country. Most of nigerians that drove anyhow here, why cant they be driving like that when they travel abroad and get d oppurtunity to drive, i swear police there will chase u to ur grave and next thing na jail

  3. I agree with you @Metu Nyetu. It is a belated attack of guilty conscience at his own foolish decision not to stop and in the process being involved in an accident that made the driver to turn his aggression on the FRSC officials but it only compounds his offence. That driver and his cohorts should not be allowed to walk free.
    NaijaGist, what is the fate of the accident victim?

  4. Animal in human skin. Why chase the animal? Once his registration number is copied, then get his car tracked. I condemned the act of the civilian.

  5. brave taught Mr. metu. the both got there wrong part beating up an official on duty n uniform 2 stupor has no respect for rule of law. preaching law destroy the system justice and if there is no proper law implementation, there will be no equality , respect, humanity to each other. Advice to DG of FRSC to take the mater up with the Federal Government in making sure that the perpetrator don’t go unpunished to show to others unscrupulous element out there that no one is above the law. if this action is not taking, the Government has fail in exercising their power and so be the uniform forces are dead….humiliation of the highest other.

  7. This is totally wrong. Beating up a Federal Officer is against the law. In a well planned Country, the owner of that Toyota Corrolla is in trouble. They will use that licensed tag to trace the owner for arrest and prosecution. If the owner denies that he was not in possession of that vehicle at that time, they wifi ask him to provide the driver. After identifying the real offender, the prosecutor will then use the federal law to prosecute him. This is a serious offense carrying maximum sentencing of 5 years behind prison bar for laying his hand on Federal Government Representative. Also his accomplices also will receive their judgement. In Nigeria of today people have no respect for the law enforcement officers because of the #20 Naira they were extorting from the drivers. If that driver knew the consequence of his offense he would have waited to get his fines rather than beating up a uniform man. Chasing the aggressive driver is not against the law because the FRSC were trained to do that. A Federal Highway Police Officers can chase the driver but when it becomes life endangerment as in knocking down the pedestrian or bystander then the FRSC can back off and trace the aggressive driver through his license plate. Nigeria should be in a stage where we can catch the criminals via street light camera but we cannot even feed ourselves not to talk of providing social amenities like this.

  8. Oh my, dis driver should be tracked down and jailed for reckless driving, endangerment, violation of law and harrasment. His offences are just too much and for d FRSC officers they should stop turning themselves to our police officers. What now happened to d innocent person that was hit by d car.

    • @ Truce, point of correction FRSC’s are federal law enforcement officers. They are actually playing the role of police officers. In Nigeria we have inadequate initiatives. As our population is increasing, we don’t have to put all burden on our police officers, what we should do is to merge all newly young recruit police cadets and train them together with FRSC, VIO, Highway Patrol, Lasma, Civil defense in the same academy. They should all have the same basic training. The only difference will be FRSC, VIO, LASMA can prosecute offenders with traffic violations but they should be able to perform in capacity of law enforcement officers because they are officers of law. In the United States, they have regular Police, Sherriffs for handling domestic violations, State Troopers handling commuters traveling from one State to another, Park Police for Parks and Grounds, County Police etc. They all attended the same academy and work hand in hand among themselves. Police in Nigeria need more support and by increasing the power of other arms of enforcement, they will be helpful in combating crimes. People look at these people as if they are not important in law enforcement and that is totally wrong.

  9. FRSC guys should be equipped with stun-gun or guns. Their lives are too much in danger on Nigeria roads. l petty these people when i see them in jungles operating without any iota of protective gears. l will not do the job for 5 million Naira per month. A beautiful FRSC woman was beaten to stupor in Abuja years back. l had to come to her rescue by contacting IG’s office.

  10. It is a pity, the FRSC should be more professional in doing their job. U don’t compare Nigeria to other developed country where things are properly put in place. The FRSC should practice what they preach. Imagine FRSC hilux not having break light, using exprie tyre, their towing van that spoil along the road not having C caution. FRSC official collecting bribe from motorists.why people nor go see them finish

  11. That serve the FRSC man right. If you have ever have anything to do with this FRSC people i tell you, you may want to kill them. VIO will hold you, police will hold you, FRSC will hold you all for one thing or another because you are driving on the road. when Prof Wole Soyinka formed FRSC, i dont think it was met to be a business centre, cos in my opinion FRSC now is like a business Center where all officer want to make money.

  12. @jilo, but in dis country do u think people are regarding d FRSC as police officers or do they av that knowledge u are talking about. And dis is not America, were everythg is planned and their system is not as corrupt as ours were police or any law enforcement agents collects bribe.
    So what u are sayg does not apply here

  13. @jilo u can’t compare law enforcement agnts in nigeria to those in America were everythg is well planned and their police men do not collect bribes.
    And moreover hw many people in niiigeria knows d FRSC as police officers, and maybe u should enlighten us more what their job really is.

  14. @jilo why do u compare police officers in nigeria to that of America were everythg Is planned, and their officers do not collect bribe.
    And hw many people in nigeria knws the FRSC as police officers, maybe u should enlighten us more on exactly what their job entails, bcos I think people need information on dis.

  15. The FRSC code of conduct that stipulated that men on patrol should not pursue moving vehicle dt failed to obey ‘stop order’ need to be revisited and re- amendeded bcos Nigerians are taking it 4 granted and dts y FRSC continue to lost his mens day by day on our highway. In California, California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers are respected and know motorist dare to run wen flaged down bcos dey knw fully well dt d officer will pursue dem to d end. Am also in surport dt National Assembly should implement dt section of FRSC Act dt empowered dem to bear arms .
