VIDEO: Policemen keep cool as man driving against Lagos traffic goes berserk


A video of two police officers attached to the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) being assaulted by a man who was stopped for driving against traffic has appeared on social media.


The less than three-minute footage showed the driver of a white car assaulting the two armed police officers.


In the video, another man who had accompanied the driver inside the car was heard shouting that they were stopped because they passed one-way traffic, wondering if the offense is enough for the police officers to stop their car.


The driver wearing a black shirt and a pair of short jeans was seen pushing one of the police officers at the scene by his chest while attempting to shove him on the ground.


Despite the efforts of passers-by to restrain the driver from assaulting the policeman, he kept pushing one of the police officers by his chest, boasting that there is nothing that would happen.


Surprisingly, the said police officer who was holding a rifle kept his cool, despite the confrontation of the driver.


The level of professionalism exhibited by the two police officers captured in the video in handling the situation is not something common with police officers in the country.


Reacting to the video, Jubril Gawat, a senior special assistant to the Lagos state governor on new media, said the driver has been arrested and currently at the state criminal investigation department, Panti.


Gawat noted that the driver’s car would be forfeited because he contravened the state traffic laws while urging residents to obey traffic rules. 

The attitude showed by the police officers received commendations from many Twitter users.
