“Driving against traffic is a very serious offence,” stated Son’Allah. I want to urge drivers to follow the law and not break any traffic regulations, as we have already detained 28 criminals.
This kind of activity typically results in fatal accidents and wrecks with ease. To keep our lanes, we need to practice self-discipline. Moving against the flow of traffic is risky and should be avoided.
It occurs more frequently in motorbike riders. However, due to its proximity to their objectives, we continue to implore all users of the roads to refrain from using one route. We all want to be safe, thus everyone needs to refrain from going in one direction.
In addition, Son’Allah cautioned drivers to have a professional demeanor at all times and to make sure they are traveling in the proper section of the road.
Remember that it’s ember period and never drink and drive. The FRSC chief issued a warning, saying, “Respect FRSC officers and other security personnel on the highways because their purpose is to protect and save you from unforeseen circumstances, not to victimize you.”
Tosin Wanlele, 24, has been taken into custody by members of the Nigerian Navy Forward Operating Base in Igbokoda, Ondo State, on suspicion of involvement in cult-related activities in the area.
When the suspect was being paraded around Igbokoda on Wednesday, the base’s executive officer made this statement on behalf of the commanding officer, Navy Captain Wasuku Alushi.
According to him, the arrest was a component of the ongoing operations in the military area of operation to combat cultism and other illegal activity.
“The suspect and others who are currently at large have been harassing and intimidating passersby with dangerous weapons,” the officer stated. As a result, we acted and arrested Tosin Wanlele, the suspect, based on reliable information.
You might find it interesting to know that the leader of the Igbokoda vigilante group verified that the suspect is a well-known and infamous cultist who has been frightening the locals for a very long time.
He was subsequently turned over to the Department of State Security for additional inquiry as a result. It is important to note that the base has persisted in working with Ondo State’s other security organizations to stop the spread of cultism in its operational region.
