CSP Jejeloye said, “The offenders were arraigned before the Lagos Mobile Court and found guilty of the said crime. This resulted in the forfeiture of their vehicles to the State government by the Court in line with Part (3) item (27) of the Lagos State Transport Sector Reform Law of 2018”. Impounded Vehicles





He urged all motorists to desist from driving against traffic (one-way) as the penalty is outright forfeiture of such vehicle to the government without an option of fine.

The Taskforce Chairman averred that other traffic offenders caught plying BRT corridors. Some were causing obstruction to other road users. The offenders were also arraigned and fined by Lagos State Mobile Court at Bolade, Oshodi.

The Chairman reiterated the State government’s zero-tolerance for the violation of the law under any guise.  This will continue until sanity is restored on Lagos roads. Impounded Vehicles
