Oluwasusi Familoni, the state sector commander, said the convicted 69 drivers were among 74 prosecuted. Five others were discharged. One of offenders is Osas Osarunwenbo, a public transport bus driver, who bagged a month sentence for assaulting and abducting an officer of the corp.
The offenders were reported to have been arraigned before a mobile court at Ramat Park in Benin, the capital of Edo State. The prosecution, Familoni said, is to "ensure safety on the roads" while road users were warned to desist from traffic rules.
