Lagos Begins Arrest And Imprisonment of Motorists Who Buy Goods in traffic

Lagos State‎ Government has commenced arrest and prosecution of motorists who buy goods in traffic.

​The enforcement was confirmed when officials ​of the Environmental Sanitation Corps Agency (LASECORPS) ‎arrested ​​​six motorists at Ikeja, along end of the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway for allegedly buying goods in the traffic.
The offenders’ vehicles, a Honda Accent, Hiace, Toyota Hilux, Toyota Sienna, taxi cab and commercial bus, were also impounded by the agency.

​F​our passengers and nine hawkers were also apprehended during the operation​.​
​On Friday, ​they were accused of breaching the environmental law and brought before a magistrate, Mr. Olayiwola Ogundare of the Ogba Magistrate’s Court, who sentenced them to three months’ imprisonment each.

Ogundare, however, gave the accused an option of N10,000 fine each, adding that each of the motorists should pay additional N20,000 fine into the state coffers.
