A patrol team of the Federal Road Safety Corps along the Abeokuta-Sagamu route in Abeokuta, Ogun State has rescued a female passenger being kidnapped by a commercial motorcyclist.
FRSC spokesperson in Ogun, Florence Okpe, said the incident occurred at about 3 pm on Sunday.
Okpe said the team rescued the woman from the Bajaj bike rider, who was identified as Dauda Usman, with bike registration number PKA211WA, Red BAJAJ.
She said, “The FRSC team was informed by some commercial motorcycle riders that a woman was being taken away by a suspected bike rider due to the alarm raised by the woman on a bike.”
