At about 0830hours of today Wednesday 20th January, 2020, the Executive Chairman, Mogaji (Dr.) Akin Fagbemi averted a major crisis at the Oluyole Estate axis of Ibadan Southwest Local Government Area where a woman simply known as “Aramide Amoke” was reported to have repeatedly assaulted an OYRTMA Officer who was on active and legitimate duty in the area.
According to eyewitnesses, Mrs. Aramide was driving on ‘one-way’ and against traffic while the officer attempted to stop her vehicle to follow the right lane.
In this process, she reportedly slapped the officer repeatedly and other motorists, passersby, commercial motorcyclist and eyewitnesses who were apparently angry and displeased at her actions gathered in an attempt to mob her and raze the vehicles involved.
It was at this point that the Executive Chairman was contacted and he swiftly moved to avert the brewing crisis by first sending a nearby representative who doused the tension, impounded the vehicle and took it alongside the assaulter to the OYRTMA Headquarters pending the time she would be charged to court for assault and deliberate breach of the Oyo State Road Traffic Management Authority Law 2009.
