Corporal Nasir Abdul, an operative of the Lagos State Rapid Response Squad (RRS), was yesterday knocked down by Yusuf Ogunbiyi ( pictured ), an auto–technician, who was trying to evade arrest for a traffic offence on Ikosi Road around 5pm. Hewas chased and arrested at his workshop.
A remorseful Ogunbiyi later said: “I got to 7up, I didn’t know the outlet from Ikosi Road was one-way, I entered it and I was waved down by a Traffic Police Officer and a LASTMA official but I tried to evade them, unknown to me, an RRS rider was equally trying to stop me but the vehicle was too close to him, I swerved off immediately in a bid to escape.
But, I ended up knocking him (RRS rider) off the road with the bumper. I was too shock and afraid, even though my colleagues in the car told me to stop, I sped off. I am sorry for everything; I didn’t know that place is one-way. I just finished my apprenticeship and looking for funds for my graduation.”
