Governor arrests road safety officer for traffic offence

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose on Friday, October 16, arrested a Federal Road Safety Corps officer at Ikere Ekiti for breaking traffic rules.

The governor stopped his convoy and ordered that the man be arrested after sighting him driving against traffic at Oke –Ikere area of the town.

Report said the road safety official, identified as Mr. Alabi, was driving a Peugeot 505 car to Ikere Ekiti, but took the wrong lane while trying to avoid the failed part of the road.

One of the governor's aides said Fayose was upset because Alabi took a wrong lane so as to dodge the bad road on which his convoy travelled.

The governor however directed the office of the Ekiti State Traffic Management Agency in Ado Ekitito book the driver accordingly.

Fayose had just finished the flag off of the Ado-Ikere-Iju dualisation and the commissioning of the downtown market stall in the town before the dramatic arrest.
