Published

The Lagos State Government on Monday unveiled a new enforcement approach to the State Road Traffic Law, which puts paid to clamping of tyres of erring vehicles; towing such vehicles and consequently impounding them until settlement of fines.

The state government disclosed that the new approach required capturing the offence on video, removing the number-plates of erring vehicles and putting a branded sticker on the windshield of the vehicles to inform the owner/drivers about their offences.

The new method was detailed in a statement, which the Commissioner for Information & Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, and the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Adeniji Kazeem co-signed.

The statement thus defended the new method of Lagos State Task Force of Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement Unit), which it said, favoured the removal of number plates of erring vehicles over clamping down and towing of vehicles.

It explained that any driver that violated the road traffic law would be invited for trial at the Special Offences Mobile Court which, it said, might sit at any nearby local government office or at the head office of the task force at Alausa, Ikeja.

It pointed out that it was within the purview of the traffic law enforcement officers “to identify violators of traffic laws and have them booked and tried according to the peculiarities of their offences without clamping their tires or tow the vehicles.”

It, therefore, denied allegations of highhandedness against officials of the Task Force and those of the Special Offences Tribunal (Mobile Court), thereby describing the coterie of complainants on social media as hypocritical and manipulative.

It said: “The new method being adopted by the special task force particularly for illegal parking of vehicles or obstruction of traffic simply involves capturing the offence on video and removing the number-plate of the erring vehicles.

“It also requires putting a branded sticker on the windshield of the car to inform the owner/driver of such cars about their offences and invitation for trial at the Special Offences Mobile Court which may be sitting at any proximate local Government office or at the Special Task office at Alausa in Ikeja.”

Tinubu finally speaks on Lekki shooting, tells Buhari to find culprits

Former Governor of Lagos state and the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has commented on the Lekki toll gate shooting that left many dead and several others injured.

The Lagos politician who was interviewed via telephone by a Channels TV reporter, Olu Philips, shared his shock over the shooting and also revealed that he is ready to complain to the highest authorities.

Contrary to people’s predictions, Tinubu however denied ordering the shooting and also stated that he can only control his security guard. He again reiterated that he will never be part of any group that uses live ammunition against protesters.

Insisting that he has always been an activist, the APC Chieftain expressed sympathy for the victims of the incident and advised the federal government to “fish out whoever gave the order (for the shooting) and put them on trial”.

He then recalled how he was falsely accused of being behind #EndSARS protests. Tinubu who noted that he doesn’t believe that Buhari ordered the shooting, appealed for calm over the incident. He also denied having a stake in the Lekki toll gate or suffering a loss due to the continous blockage of the area by #EndSARS protesters.

He said,

“It is early hours of the morning, there’s no way I can talk to the authorities or wake them up now. I have tried to reach the NSA, I have tried to reach the head of the army.

“You don’t call the president at this hour, but I strongly condemn the act. There are other means of settling or dispersing protest. Why would they use live bullets? There are rubber bullets.

“I am not even sure yet they are Nigerian army, I am not sure how well the uniforms of the army are controlled. But that is not as critical as the bloodshed that has occurred.

“We have lost our sleep, we have lost our peace of mind, (and) we just have to deal with it.”
