Metro LASTMA Officials Engage in Free-for-all With Lagosians at Alausa [VIDEO]



Assbifi road in Alausa Ikeja, the capital of Lagos state was engulfed in chaos during the week as 17 officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA, engaged in a free-for-all with Lagosians and members of an Information Technology, IT, firm in the area.

Trouble began when some LASTMA officials tried to tow a vehicle away for flouting the state's traffic law. Opeyemi Oni, the car owner who protested in disagreement with them was prevented from entering the car by the officials.

A few minutes later, a tow truck arrived to take the car away. Opeyemi's colleagues tried to interfere and the matter degenerated into a free-for-all.

Oni was also assaulted by the officials and he hit one of them three times in retaliation. One of his colleagues was slapped four times by another LASTMA official after the man queried him.

According to Punch the Lagos State Police Spokesman, Olarinde Famous-Cole, has confirmed the incident, saying the matter is under investigation.
