Driving against one-way traffic is already enough crime to get your vehicle impounded in Lagos not to talk of going as far as assaulting a police officer in uniform. It is quite ridiculous but true that a certain Lagos motorist ticked all the boxes last weekend after being arrested for driving against one-way traffic, reckless driving and assault of a senior police officer. Press reports claim that the 33-year-old driver identified as Victor Ebhomenyen was arrested on Saturday, April 17 at the popular 4-Point Hotel in the Oniru part of Lagos state.

According to several press reports, a viral social media video that came under the attention of the Lagos state police command prompted the immediate arrest of Victor Ebhomenyen for multiple crimes. The reports on the young man’s case revealed that he was allegedly caught on camera driving against one-way traffic and assaulting a senior police officer in uniform. Media reports claim that Victor Ebhomenyen allegedly inflicted bodily injuries on ASP Erhator Sunday during the mid-day hours on Saturday 17th of April 2021.
Media sources narrated that Victor Ebhomenyen was driving a white-painted Hyundai SUV with plate number MUS 251 EH when RRS police officers blocked him for driving against a “One-Way” lane traffic at Oniru, Lagos. The reports further stated that Victor Ebhomenyen and his accomplice came down angrily from their vehicle to confront and violently attack the senior police officer who suffered bodily injuries during the assault. As of the time of writing this report, Victor Ebhomenyen is said to have been arrested and kept in police custody while more effort is being made to get hold of his accomplice who is currently on the run.

Meanwhile, a similar report of a Lagos motorist assaulting police officers also went viral last month after the driver almost killed an officer with his vehicle while attempting to evade arrest.
