The letter read in part ” The frequency at which our officers are being seriously attacked has really come to a stage for the authority to raise alarm. We have earlier written letters of complaints to those concerned especially the Nigerian Army on the atrocities being committed by its personnel which resulted in the vandalisation of our five operational vehicles beyond repair. The photographs of our injured personnel and the Army officer that led the assaults are here with attached as evidence. ”
The latest incident was said to have happened at Saki in the Okeogun area of Oyo State.
The Speaker urged the House Committee on Transportation to investigate the allegation and report to the house as soon as possible.
