"Is this an ambush? Is it right to drive past Police Officers in this condition and not help? Will my conscience arrest me if I ignore fellow citizens? Will I be happy if Police officers drove past me if the reverse is the case? Said to myself, I am not raised this way to leave people in pain or such discomforting situation. If I perish I perish, I reversed and asked if they needed help. They were shocked but answered in the affirmative."

The Yoruba actor revealed the police officers were surprised by his gesture to assist them. He added he helped them with fuel and jump-started their car when it refused to start.

In a show of appreciation for the assistance rendered to the officers, the DPO of the Ipakodo police station sent a message to an excited Fabiyi, who shared it with his fans and followers.
