The motorist, who declined to give his name, asked the FRSC officer to approach the driver of the vehicle he was trying to arrest in a more civilised way. The officer got angry, left that vehicle and got over to the driver of the Ford and slapped him after a hot exchange of words.
It was observed that close to a dozen FRSC officers were on routine stop and search duty around the Nyanya pedestrian bridge on the Keffi-Abuja expressway and they also descended on the motorist.
They forced him to park at Forte Oil service station where they manhandled him and threatened to call the military if he refused to follow them to their office.
When Daily Trust reporter approached the most senior officer in the team to comment, he said he did not know the exact problem but he alleged that a brother of the Ford driver was trying to fight them.
