Sola Olagunju, the reckless driver who crushed an officer with the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Sunday Abolusoro to death in Ondo state has now signed a “documented agreement” with the family of the deceased.
Sahara Reporters exclusively learned on Sunday that the signed agreements have been documented in form of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Mr. Olagunju and the families of late FRSC officer Abolusoro.
Two sources in both families confirmed that the lawyers of the two parties were present in a meeting where the agreement was reached and signed.
Our correspondent had reported that Mr. Olagunju had on Saturday, November 25th, 2017 killed Abolusoro while he was performing his lawful duty on the Akure/Ilesha express road.
The reckless driver had speedily veered off the expressway and struck Mr. Abolusoro, a Deputy Commander (DRC) killing him instantly during a stop and check by the Federal Road Safety Corps manning the road.
SaharaReporters learned that a wife, two children and aged families, survived the thirty-seven-year-old dutiful officer.
The FRSC in the state had vowed to get justice for the deceased officer in court immediately he was killed.

According to the source, the total sum of five million Naira would be paid by the driver to the family of the deceased in order to help his widow start a business so that she can take good care of their children.
This source also informed that the money will be disbursed to the wife on a monthly basis.
