Three persons have been arrested in connection to a mob attack against an official of the Federal Road Safety Corps in Anambra state.
According to reports, the trio were arrested by the Anambra State Anti Robbery squad in the state after an angry mob beat up an FRSC personnel after a motorcyclist fell trying to avoid arrest.
The spokesman of the FRSC, Mr Bisi Kazeem, in a statement on Wednesday said the efforts are being made to arrest others involved as well as the motorcyclist.
He further denied claims that an FRSC was beaten up in Ichida, Anambra State for collecting bribe.
He said; “The true position is that an offending Okada man who sighted our personnel on normal patrol suddenly turned to escape arrest and fell in the process.
“His fall attracted sympathy from miscreants and other Okada men who then seized the opportunity to mob the personnel,” he said.
Kazeem said efforts were being made to apprehend “the other miscreants and ‘Okada’ riders for prosecution”.
“The Corps Marshal said the FRSC would continue to cooperate with other sister agencies in the discharge of its statutory duties.
“He added that the Corps would no longer tolerate the harassment, assault and victimisation of its personnel on flimsy excuses and trivial issues,” Kazeem said.
