traffic rulesA policeman dressed in mufti, Friday morning, created an ugly scene at Railway Junction, Dugbe area in Ibadan, as he fought with officials of FRSC and NSCDC, who attempted to arrest him after violating traffic laws by making calls while driving.
An eye witness account said when FRSC officials attempted to flag him down, an argument ensued after which the policeman was said to have thrown a canister of tear gas in a bid to escape.
However, NSCDC officers on patrol arrived the scene and accosted the police officer for assaulting fellow law enforcement agents, but the erring police officer was said to have called for backup, which upon arrival, beat up the NSCDC officer on ground, and seized their vehicle.
Police officers thereafter invaded the command office of NSCDC at Railway Junction, a situation that eventually became messy.
