“The driver on Tuesday 07 January 2020 around the Sagamu Interchange knocked down an FRSC Operative while on patrol, after being stopped for violating a traffic infraction but in a desperate attempt to escape, knocked down the Marshal.
“The instrumentality of the National Vehicle Identification Scheme were deployed to track the driver who initially escaped by running away, though abandoned his vehicle.
