A yet-to-be-identified official of the Federal Road Safety Corps(FRSC) officer has reportedly been killed in Lagos State by a trailer over a stop-and-search which witnesses said was an attempt to collect a bribe from the driver.
KOKO TV NG gathered that the FRSC officer was killed in Orile Agege while trying to stop a moving truck for a bribe.
An X, formerly Twitter, user, Nwa while sharing the video of the incident said, “FRSC Officer’s squeezed to death by a trailer in an attempt to stop an oncoming lorry at Orile bus/stop Axis of Lagos State,”
Another user, Bishop while captioning the video said, “Watch how this Lagos FRSC officer lost his life by a trailer in Orile Agege cos of 100 naira bribe. Too sad things like this still happen in Tinubu Lagos.”
KOKO TV NG was unable to get comments from the state police spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin. His phone number could not be reached despite several attempts.
