The Lagos State Government has vowed to continue to clamp down on miscreants who harass motorists and truck drivers going about their lawful businesses, through continuous sting operations across the State. 

The Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde made this known at the weekend while parading four arrested hoodlums – Tunji Oyedeji, Allison Ozin, Taiwo Olubodun and Awotunde Ahmed, who were caught perpetrating illegal activities in Amuwo-Odofin area of the State. 

Oladeinde stated that the arrest of the miscreants demonstrates the State Government’s resolve to provide an enabling environment devoid of illegal activities, stressing that the Ministry will intensify its sting operations across the State with a view to curbing the activities of the urchins whose actions are hindering the State’s economic development. 

He noted that the suspects arrested have been handed over to the Lagos State TASKFORCE for investigation and prosecution, warning others to desist from illegal activities or be made to face the full wrath of the law in line with the Lagos State Transport Sector Reform Law 2018. 

Recall that the Transport Operations and Compliance Unit of the Ministry in February apprehended a group of miscreants in the Igando axis while extorting a tipper driver on his way to offload his consignment.
