An unidentified official of the Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC has stabbed to death a driver around Umuikaa junction in Isialangwa South local government area of Abia State, ABN TV reports.
Though the details of the incident is still sketchy, all efforts to reach the public relations officer of Abia State command of FRSC proved abortive.
Meanwhile, the Executive Chairman, Isiala Ngwa South Local Government Area and State ALGON Chairman, Comrade Ike Anyatonwu has condemned in strong terms the alleged stabbing of the motorist.
In a release signed by one Enyinnaya Standhope Nwaigwe, the local government chairman said he visited the hospital where the victim’s body was dumped.
He said, “Comrade Anyatonwu who broke his annual leave to visit Ronald Hospital, Mkpuka where the victim was dumped in the pool of his blood by his alleged killers and was later confirmed dead by the Management of the Hospital wondered why such dastardly act has become a recurring incident at Umuikaa junction and called on the State Sector Commander of Federal Road Safety Corps to immediately investigate the matter with a view to bringing the perpetrators to book.
“The State ALGON Chairman while passing a vote of no confidence on the activities of various Security Agencies operating at Umuikaa junction along the Expressway explained that their unlawful activities have defeated the aim of bringing them to the area as they have turned their checkpoints to toll gates to the detriment of the people they are to protect while calling on the youths to remain calm and avoid taking laws into their own hands.”
He pledged to assist the authorities in ensuring that the perpetrators of the dastardly act are brought to book.
