The Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Anambra State Police Command have arrested three persons connected with a recent mob attack on a patrol team of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) at Igbo-Ukwu, Anambra.
In a statement issued in Abuja, the FRSC spokesman, Bisi Kazeem, said the suspects were arrested on Tuesday.
Kazeem said efforts were being made to apprehend “the other miscreants and ‘Okada’ riders for prosecution”.
Reacting to the arrests, Corps Marshal of the FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi, commended the Inspector-General of Police and the Police Command in Anambra for their prompt action.
Oyeyemi enjoined the police to fish out others at large for prosecution so as to serve as a deterrent to potential offenders.
Earlier, there was speculation on the Internet that the FRSC patrol team was mobbed for allegedly demanding a bribe at Ichida, also in Anambra state.
