Task force agent wrestles steering with driver in Akwa Ibom, causes serious accident

Earlier today, a member of the State Task Force on transportation caused a very serious accident in Eket Local Government Area, Akwa Ibom State.

According to reports obtained by NaijaPeople, the task force agent allegedly pretended to be a passenger and boarded a vehicle that was picking up passengers illegally. He thereafter tried to take control of the steering while the vehicle was in motion. This resulted in a struggle between the duo, which caused the vehicle to veer dangerously off the road, hitting a motorcyclist.

The task force agent tried to escape after causing the accident, but was apprehended by youths who almost lynched him if not for the timely intervention of men of the Nigerian Police.

The cyclist sustained injuries and was rushed to a nearby hospital.

NaijaPeople further learnt that about a month ago, the task force agents had pulled a similar stunt, which resulted in the death of a cyclist and his passenger.
