The Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, in a terse text message to our correspondent, confirmed that the ruling was being appealed in Sokoto State.
Kazeem said, “The matter is on appeal at the Court of Appeal, Sokoto.”
The FRSC had said Aliyu, who drove a Black Toyota Corolla with the registration number KLG342AA on the day of the incident, had attempted to knock down a member of the corps’ patrol team, Abubakar Garba Abubakar.
When he could not knock Abubakar down, he was said to have “recklessly headed for the deceased and ensured that he crushed him to death as his first target.”
The accused was also reported to have fled the scene after killing his victim. However, he was arrested along Kalgo Road by the police after a tip-off.
