Eyewitness Fatai recounted, “The driver was coming from Osogbo towards Gbongan. Despite being flagged down, he didn’t stop. Instead, he hit the officer and dragged him along until he fell off the vehicle.” The driver callously fled the scene towards Akoda Junction, leaving the injured officer behind.

The injured officer was immediately attended to by fellow FRSC personnel and nearby witnesses. The severity of his injuries has not been officially confirmed, but initial reports suggest they are serious.

The incident has sparked outrage among local residents and the FRSC community, who condemn the reckless behavior of the driver. “It’s a brazen disregard for human life,” stated Ramota Olagunju, a roadside trader near the Osun Government Secretariat.

After the officer fell, the driver didn’t even hesitate. He just sped away as if nothing happened.”

Efforts are underway by the FRSC and local law enforcement agencies to apprehend the fleeing driver and bring him to justice. Authorities have begun reviewing CCTV footage from the area and gathering statements from eyewitnesses to piece together the sequence of events and identify the perpetrator.

Commissioner of Police in Osun State, assured the public that every effort is being made to locate the suspect and ensure justice is served. “Such reckless disregard for the law and human life will not be tolerated,” the Commissioner affirmed.

As investigations continue, local residents are urged to provide any information they may have regarding the whereabouts of the suspect or details that could assist in the ongoing investigation.

The incident serves as a stark reminder of the dangers faced by law enforcement officers in the line of duty and the need for motorists to obey traffic regulations to prevent such tragic occurrences.
