A resident of Lagos on Wednesday has cried out to the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-olu to investigate and stop how Lagos State Traffic Management (LASTMA), Police TASKFORCE officials in collaboration with a Vulcanizer illegally arrest motorists in Anthony Area.
In a statement posted on his twitter handle, @ELeeTrait said the Vulcanizer on Anthony Bridge, near TREM Church is “suspected to be working hand in hand with @followlastma and Taskforce members at LASTMA HQ, OSHODI.
According to him, once you park your car at the side of his machine, LASTMA or Police Taskforce would doublecross and arrest you for wrong parking.
“I went to bail someone’s car at the HQ last week and saw a number of victims that their cars were impounded for the same reason.
“I asked a LASTMA official there why they haven’t told the Vulcanizer to reposition his machine? He told me that the machine is there to serve cars on the service lane which clearly doesn’t make sense from the pics attached.
“I even went to appeal to the vulcanizer afterwards to reposition his machine closer to the service lane, the @followlastma official at the scene told me to mind my business.
“The fine for parking there is N50,000 or side bribes and the Pictures clearly show that the Machine Position is a Trap!!!
PLEASE READ AND RT TO HELP SOMEONE!
