LASTMA said its General Manager, Bolaji Oreagba, was grieved by the incident.

“Oreagba also noted that this occurrence would not discourage the officers of the agency from continuing to carry out their duties and responsibilities as enshrined in the law that set up the agency.
“He, therefore, appealed to the general public to abide by the laws governing the state in order not to run foul of the law and its attendant consequences.”
