The General Manager of LASTMA, Olajide Oduyoye has condemned in its entirety the continued attack on the officers of the agency in the course of carrying out the function of traffic management which has been entrusted to them by a law passed by the State House of Assembly in the year 2000 and amended in the year 2018.
Oduyoye said this in the light of the murder of a LASTMA official, Ola Oyeshina who was attacked at about 5pm on Friday, 29th November during the course of sanitising Iganmu-Sifax axis of Apapa.
The General Manager disclosed that a large stone was thrown at Oyeshina. He was immediately rushed to Area “B” police station along with two of the people that attacked him, ACP Bayo Sulaimon thereafter ordered the detention of the two (2) attackers that were arrested while a letter of medical referral was issued for the victims attention at the hospital.
Oduyoye further revealed that owing to the trauma experienced, he (Ola Oyeshina) was immediately referred to LUTH from Randle Hospital, Surulere.
The LASTMA General Manager further revealed that it is unfortunate that the agency lost the young promising officer to the cold hand of death in the early hours of Saturday, 30th November, 2019.
He has therefore assured that the perpetrators of the dastardly act that were caught will be prosecuted in the court of law to serve as deterrent to other members of the public who may harbour committing such crime in future.
Oduyoye revealed that, “LASTMA was established to manage and control traffic in order to reduce the people’s travel time on our roads, increase economic growth through increased productivity and ensure the populace safety and security, a situation where road users will now turn against any government official in order not to answer the consequences of breaking the law is unacceptable and would not be condoned henceforth”.
Oduyoye emphasised that with the recent inauguration of a committee on war against traffic and environmental offenders, there is no more hiding place for Lagos residents or visitors that go against the law.
