The video of a road Marshal, who pulled a dangerous stunt in Abuja is currently trending on social media
The road Safety officer mounted the bonnet of a moving car of a lady who refused to stop for him, owning to the fact that he had no protective gear on.
In the video, the yet to be identified lady, was seen driving off with the officer on her car bonnet, with a Federal Road Safety Corp, FRSC, vehicle in pursuit, but her car was brought to a halt, when a concerned citizen flagged her to stop.
The driver of the vehicle was a staff of the Africa Independent Television (AIT); He beckoned on her to stop, knowing the danger the officer was in and the consequences of her action could be worse than a fine.
The video shows the red car coming to a stop and Men of the FRSC, pulled up next to her car and immediately got out and confronted the driver while another officer proceeded to deflate her tyres, tore out her plate number and asked to her to come out of her car whilst shouting curses at her and threatening to slap her, as seen in the video below.
The lady who avoided being beaten, approached the man who flagged her down to explain why she drove off with an officer on her car bonnet, stating that she was only trying to protect herself as the officer wasn’t putting on a protective gear nor a face mask.
A Twitter user identified as Francis, shared his opinion on the incident, as he expressed his disappointment over the behavior of some uniform operatives, adding that lady was only trying to protect herself.
According to media reports the lady who pulled the stunt on the officer will be charged to court as the Road Safety officials who mal-handled the lady’s car have been relieved of their duty.
