LASTMA To Dismiss Five Officials Over Extortion


The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority has recommended five officials for dismissal over offences bordering on extortion and harassment.

While 10 others were reprimanded, 14 were recommended for demotion and 15 others issued letters of warning.

LASTMA General Manager, Mr. Olawale Musa, in a statement on Thursday, added that three officials were exonerated after thorough investigations.

He said, “The affected officers appeared in April before the Personal Management Board (discipline) to defend and make presentation on various actions that bordered on indiscipline against them.”

Musa, who spoke after monitoring flow of traffic along Lagos-Abeokuta and Apapa-Oshodi expressways, also appealed to motorists plying routes, where major construction works were ongoing, to bear with the state government and comply with traffic directives.
