Lagos State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, yesterday apprehended some lawless motorists including a soldier, who drove against traffic along the Murtala Muhammed Airport Road, Ikeja.
The evidently shocked governor was quick to swerve into action as he observed the manner some motorists drove ‘one way’ to beat the traffic along the Air-force Base inward International Airport Road, Ikeja.
He was particularly angry that one of the offenders, an army personnel, who drove a space bus with registration number JJJ 290 AC, choose to blatantly contravene the law.
On sighting the vehicle, Ambode alighted from his car and reprimanded the officer for showing bad example contrary to what the Nigeria Army is known for.
Another offender, who drove a saloon car with registration number LSR 445 ER, also got some schooling from the governor for breaking the law regardless of the dangers involved in driving against traffic.
Ambode immediately ordered for the vehicles to be impounded, while also directing that the offenders be prosecuted in line with the provisions of the Traffic Laws.
