The court also ordered 43 other drivers to pay various sums as fines to the state government. Their offence was plying the BRT corridors and causing road obstruction.

Only 74 drivers appeared before the court out of the 160 traffic offenders arrested. This was according to the Chairman of the agency, Olayinka Egbeyemi.

Egbeyemi added that the agency acted in response to a series of complaints from members of the public. The complaint was particularly about activities of motorists taking one-way drivers. This often caused gridlock daily since the #EndSARS protest across the state.

He said, “It is painful that with a high level of enlightenment campaigns and several warnings by the government, motorists, including private car owners, are still driving against traffic knowing full well that the penalty for such offence is outright forfeiture of the said vehicle to the government.” One-Way
