Lockdown: Driver runs over Civil Defence Officer

An officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Assistant Superintendent of Corps Victor Fayemi, attached to Federal Capital Territory, escaped death when a Volkswagen Golf commercial driver trying to evade arrest ran over him along the Gwarinpa/Kado Road area of Abuja.

The accident knocked him unconscious and was rushed to Maitama District Hospital, where he was promptly attended to.

After specialised medical treatment at Maitama District Hospital, he was moved into a private hospital, where he is currently receiving further treatment.

ASC Fayemi was hit by the commercial driver who was trying to evade arrest by the security officers on duty as he defied coronavirus lockdown measures put in place by the Federal Government.

Officers of the NSCDC mounted roadblocks on Gwarinpa/Kado Road in an attempt to prevent the taxis from operating.

While the officer tried to stop the driver for questioning, he allegedly ran over him.

The driver was later arrested by the Joint Task Force of the FCT Administration.

Both the driver and the vehicle were taken into custody of the Nigeria Police for further investigation and prosecution.

Meanwhile, the Commandant General, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu, said the behaviour of the driver was unacceptable in the eyes of law enforcement.

Muhammadu advised people not to attempt to evade arrest under any circumstance, especially at this critical period when the world is facing with the challenge of COVID-19.

He said government needs the support and cooperation of all stakeholders in order to win the war against coronavirus.
