The Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA) has urged Lagosians and other Nigerians to disregard the trending video of its officers driving against traffic along Iyana-Oworo.

In a statement, the General Manager, LASTMA, Bolaji Oreagba, said the videoed incident occurred in 2020 before the #ENDSARs protest around Iyana-Oworo. He added that the authority had appropriately sanctioned all the officers involved.

The patrol van with registration No. RTM 08 LA (Zone 25 Bariga) seen in the viral video was one of LASTMA operational vehicles burnt alongside its office building by #ENDSARs protesters at Iyana-Oworo, Lagos. 

The agency, therefore, urged members of the public to disregard the video that was deployed to embarrass 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.”
