A two-part undercover report by this platform, exposed officers of the agency who extorted and maltreated the reporter, who deliberately used himself as a test subject, for failing to use the bridges.

The extortion was contrary to the laws guiding the enforcement of pedestrian bridge violations.

LAGESC Public Affairs Officer, Kehinde Adebayo, who called the reporter on the phone said the agency has commenced investigation on the matter.

“I want to get to the root of the matter. I will need your support for us to do an independent investigation of the matter. The agency will do its own findings on the matter. We are currently carrying out own independent investigation,” he said.
