Officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has impounded a vehicle loaded with goats alleged to have been stolen in Oyo State.
The FRSC Unit Commander in Egbeda, Assistant Corps Commander, Akeem Kareem, disclosed this while showing the goats and the vehicle to journalists in Ibadan.
The unit commander said that the FRSC officials met the car engine still running when they arrived at the scene and the goats inside the car were tied in the mouth with tape.
He said the vehicle was eventually removed from the road to prevent obstruction and road crashes.
Kareem said the FRSC Sector Commander in the state, Mrs Uche Chukwurah, had instructed him to hand over the goats and the vehicle to the police for further investigation since statutorily, FRSC could not investigate the matter.
“Road safety is everybody’s business.
“And, because of the insecurity in the country, anything we see on the road, we pick interest and make sure it is corrected before it gets out of control,’’ he said.
Kareem urged the public to always alert FRSC whenever they noticed any obstruction on the road in order to avoid avoidable accidents.
