The Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi , has recalled a patrol team attached to Ikorodu unit to the Lagos State Sector Command for investigation and appropriate disciplinary actions .
This followed a viral video showing a member of the patrol team clinging precariously to the bonnet of a moving Honda car along the Ikorodu – Sagamu road on July 6 , 2020, during a special joint patrol operation targeted at enforcing the Presidential Task Force directives on physical distancing and overloading amongst passengers to curb further spread of the coronavirus .
The team had attempted to arrest the driver for seatbelts violation but he failed to stop.

“For emphasis , a staff member does not need to commit suicide while stopping an offender that is already on a suicide mission , because every arrest of an offender is expected to be done within safe and professional limits in line with their training and operational guidelines and not to unnecessarily put their own lives in danger while attempting to arrest a fleeing offender .
“ That is why the Corps has been deploying technology to track all cases of absconding recalcitrant drivers of this nature and bring them to justic
