Drama As Fayose Personally Arrests FRSC Official For Flouting Traffic Rules



There was a mild drama in Ikere Ekiti yesterday when Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose arrested an officer of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) for driving against traffic.

Fayose was said to have personally arrested the FRSC officer while on his way to the flag off of dualization of the Ado-Ikere-Ondo State boundary road and commissioning of some projects in Ikere town as part of activities marking the first anniversary of his administration.

Nation reports that the FRSC officer whose name was given as Adeola Alabi, left the bad portion of the road for the other lane and drove against traffic to avoid potholes and reconnect the lane he was before.


The incident which happened at Sawmill area of Ikere Ekiti caused traffic snarl as some residents came out to watch the drama.

Alabi’s action infuriated Fayose who ordered security operatives in his convoy to ensure the road safety officer was apprehended.

After he was arrested, Alabi prostrated before Fayose, begging the governor to have mercy on him.

The governor did not listen to his pleas, maintaining that law must take its course.

Fayose ordered that the Peugeot 505 Saloon car driven by Alabi should be seized and taken to the Ekiti State Traffic Management Agency (EKSTMA) yard.

The culprit is expected to cough out N50,000 as fine for driving against traffic, Nation reports.
