Motorist Convicted For Attempting To Bribe FRSC Marshal With N500 (Photo)


A middle aged motorist, Ayo Okundaye, has been convicted by a mobile court sitting in Benin court for attempting to bribe an operative of the Federal Road Safety Corps with N500.
Okundaye was found guilty of a three-count charge of driving without number plate, forged driver’s licence and attempting to bribe an FRSC official on duty.

The convict, who pleaded guilty to the charges, however, alleged that the money was not a bribe but a gratification.

The N500 note was marked as exhibit A by the Magistrate.

Sentencing the convict, the Magistrate, Friday Igbinosa, who found the convict guilty of the three-count charge, said an act of corruption was a serious offence the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari frowns at, adding that “even the Commission has zero tolerance for such act.”

“I however commend you for admitting guilt, but must warn you to desist from the act and ensure you go through appropriate quarters to acquire your vehicle particulars and driver’s licence in the future,” Igbinosa said.

The Magistrate who also commended the FRSC official for resisting the temptation to receive bribe, urged other Marshals to emulate his deeds.

He ordered the forfeiture of the faked driver’s licence to the Federal Government, just as he ordered the convict to pay N35, 000 for the offences.
