An investigation into the authenticity of a recent viral social media video of a cow straying on the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos has begun.
FRSC Sector Commander in Lagos, Olusegun Ogungbemide, said on Friday that the command had watched the trending video and condemned the incident.
A viral video of the large ruminants jogging on the busiest highway in the nation’s economic capital, disrupting traffic flow made the rounds. The incident is said to have occurred in the early hours of Wednesday.
“I confirm that the command had carefully watched the viral video and condemned the incident.
“The command has, therefore, directed a full investigation into the authenticity of the viral video and the source of the cow to forestall future occurrence,” the sector commander of Lagos FRSC, Mr Ogungbemide, said.
He, however, tasked livestock owners to ensure their animals were kept away from causing distractions to motorists plying the road within the state.
He also advised road users to be more vigilant and careful of avoidable and unexpected distractions on the expressway.
The road safety boss added that motorists should promptly report road traffic crashes and other incidents by dialling FRSC’s toll-free number 122.
