The Lagos State Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit (Task Force) on Tuesday denied that it’s officers were not involved in the death of a young man at Oshodi as being falsely reported on the social media.

This contained in a quoted statement signed by CSP Shola Jejeloye, Chairman, Lagos State Environmental and Special Offences Unit (Task Force).

According to him, early this morning, a commercial bus driver was illegally loading passengers by the roadside in Oshodi and, on noticing the presence of a Lagos Task Force vehicle, took off recklessly at a high speed, knocking down the innocent young man who was trying to cross the Oshodi Expressway.

“Despite warnings and enlightenment campaigns about the dangers of violating traffic laws, commercial drivers have continued to flout the law and put the lives of commuters at risk. This violation of the law led to the death that occurred in Oshodi.

“No gunshot was fired within the vicinity as being rumoured on social media. Members of the public are advised to refrain from believing false information released online by mischievous individuals who are out to cause public disorder and unrest in Lagos.

He added that the Lagos State government sympathised with the family of the deceased young man.

“The reckless commercial bus driver will be apprehended and prosecuted in accordance with the law, he concluded.
