Driver knocks policeman off bridge in Lagos

A video circulating on the internet captures the moment a driver knocked a police officer off a bridge while trying to evade arrest in Lagos.

The unknown driver was said to have been driving against traffic when police officers and men of the Lagos State Traffic Management (LASTMA) nabbed him for violating the traffic rules.

To avoid arrest, the man who drove a Toyota Highlander stepped back, hit one of the officers behind him, and threw him off the bridge into a canal below.

Fortunately, the officer survived the fall when he tried to swim out of the canal. The Lagos State Police Command arrested the driver who knocked down the police officer from the bridge while resisting arrest.

The command’s PR officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, announced this in a statement signed in Lagos on Thursday.

Adejobi said the driver ran over Inspector David Zapania while trying to escape while he was stopped for driving against traffic along International Airport road.

“Some LASTMA (Lagos State Transport Management Authority) personnel, backed up by the police on enforcement duty on Wednesday contravened a Toyota Highlander SUV, driving against the traffic along International Airport road.

“The driver resisted arrest and while trying to escape, knocked down a police inspector from the bridge who fell into a canal,” he said.

Adejobi said the police inspector was rescued and taken to the Lagos State Emergency and Trauma Center, where he was treated and discharged, but sustained a fracture on his left hand.

He said Lagos State Police Commissioner Mr. Hakeem Odumosu sympathized with the police officer and reiterated his zero tolerance for gross violations of the state’s road traffic laws and regulations.

Watch the video below:

In other news, a video making the rounds online shows the moment a Lagosians saved a driver from ‘police extortion’.

In the video, a man can be heard asking the Officer what offense the driver committed, a question the officer could not answer.

Twitter user, @Sholium, who shared the video on his page, wrote ;

This policeman today at Ikeja under the bridge was trying to extort this driver we all stood up against him.
He left in shame, no more intimidation. (Watch the video here)
