Mrs Ndidi Amehia Eleazar, caused a stir on Wednesday on the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, when she sat on the bonnet of her car to evade arrest. Accused of biting the thumb of an FRSC officer, she was arraigned before the FRSC Mobile Court.
The incident caused a gridlock at the Tollgate end of the expressway.A combined team from the Ota and Agbado commands were on the road with a mobile court to sensitise motorists and prosecute traffic offenders when they noticed the woman driving with a cracked windscreen. The vehicle also had worn out tyres, which the officers categorised as secondary offence.
After being informed of her offences, Eleazar ignored the officer. It was gathered that she attempted to drive off with the officer who then switched off the ignition and removed the key. She was said to have bit the officer on the thumb.
She alighted from the vehicle and sat on the bonnet with the car in the middle of the highway. She was eventually docked before the mobile court on a five-count charge of windscreen violation, tyre violation, dangerous driving, assaulting marshal on duty and obstructing marshal on duty. She was presented before Magistrate S Banwo who slammed her with a fine of N66, 000'.
