The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) has reacted to a viral video on ‘Twitter’ (@OmoGbajaBiamila) where Officers who drove against traffic (One-way) with an operational vehicle (RTM 08 LA Zone 25 Bariga) were blocked by a private vehicle on Oworonsoki bridge, Lagos.

In a statement signed by Bolaji Oreagba, GM, LASTMA, the Agency said that the incident occurred in year 2020 before the #ENDSARS protest around Iyana-Oworo.

Adding: “All Officers involved have been appropriately sanctioned by the Authority.”

According to the statement, “the patrol van with registration No. RTM 08 LA (Zone 25 Bariga) seen in the viral video was among LASTMA operational vehicles burnt alongside our office building by #Endsars protesters at Iyana-Oworo, Lagos.”

“The Agency, therefore, urges members of the public to disregard the video that was deployed to embarrass our team of hardworking Officers.

“LASTMA will continue effective monitoring and control of traffic across the State, just as it will not condone indiscipline among any of its personnel,” the statement.
