Nigerian Lawmakers Set to Stop Police Traffic Bullying

…Frown at Police, Military Disregard to Traffic Rules

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he House of Representatives on Wednesday urged service chiefs to compel their personnel to obey traffic laws. This was sequel to a motion by Rep. Enitan Badru (Lagos-APC).

Moving the motion, Badru expressed dismay over what he described as the contemptuous disregard for traffic laws by military personnel.

According to the lawmaker, military personnel often promote aggression on the road through blaring of sirens, chastising other motorists with horsewhips and bullying drivers in the process.

He said that the appropriate sanctions should be introduced to deter offenders and called on military chiefs and the Inspector-General of Police to call their personnel to order.

The motion was unanimously adopted by members when it was put to a voice vote by the speaker, Mr Yakubu Dogara.

The House, therefore, mandated Chief of Defence Staff and other service chiefs, including the Inspector-General of Police to call their personnel to order over disregard for traffic laws.
