Abia Lawmaker orders Police to shoot FRSC Officials for stopping Wife's VehicleAbia State House of Assembly speaker Chikwendu Kalu allegedly ordered policemen to shoot Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) officials who stopped a vehicle with his wife in it.

According to Punch the officials had stopped the Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) along the Umuikaa/Aba-Port Harcourt Expressway.

A source who spoke to the press said:

When the vehicle was stopped (by the FRSC officials), the driver refused to stop, only for him to stop at a distance.

The driver reversed the vehicle and it was discovered that a woman in the passenger seat in front, is an officer of the Department of State Services (DSS) attached to the governor’s wife.

The DSS officer ran towards the officer who stopped the vehicle, held him by uniform and dragged him to the ground, accusing him of hitting their vehicle.

The speaker’s wife was said to have also joined in beating the Road Safety Officials.

While this was going on, someone dialed the number of the lawmaker, who arrived and ordered policemen with him to shoot the FRSC officials.

The source said:

One of them called the speaker whose village is nearby. He then came with some policemen. He ordered them to shoot the officers who were sitting inside the patrol vehicle and mercilessly beat up the team leader.

The policemen also forcefully opened the patrol vehicle and went away with the battery. They left the team leader and the other officials that were shot on the road. Other road users helped them to the hospital.

The FRSC Public Education Officer Bisi Kazeem, speaking to the press, confirmed the incident.

He said the case had been reported to the commissioner of police in the state.

The battered FRSC officials are said to be in the hospital and will need to undergo surgery.

    Sheer indiscipline is the order of the day, why couldn’t she just stop and obey orders. I pray she is prosecuted, what nonsense.
    Even if the officer was wrong couldn’t they have gotten his details and report him to their command instead of taking laws into their hands and if you check very well they must have been over speeding as most government officials are fond of doing on the road. We need to make our lawmakers and government officials know that they are certainly not above the law!

    Disgusting behaviour. He should be suspended whilst an investigation takes place that will hopefully lead to his resignation or sacking. Ooops wait this is Nigeria so perhaps not

    Is she above the law to be stopped by the FRSC? Aren’t they doing their jobs on the highway to inspect vehicles and prevent accidents from occurring? Sending a policeman to shoot another man, Lawless nation!! Smh!

    Power corrupt absolute Power corrupt absolutely. If this is proven to be the truth. The so called Abia State house of assembly must be impeached ASAP.. As for the morons (Police officers who participated in this dastardly acts should be arrested and be expelled from the Nigeria Police force after which all the culprits ( former Abia State speaker and his wife and all the former police officers must be tried in the Court like any other criminals.). Furthermore, the families of the Federal Road Safety Officials must institute civil legal actions against the former house speaker, and the employer of the Police officers respectively to seek damages for pain and suffering. Just my opinion. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.
