Lagosians defying COVID-19 lockdown on suicide mission — LASTMA



The General Manager of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), Mr. Olajide Oduwoye, said on Saturday residents of the state defying the COVID-19 lockdown were on a suicidal mission.

Oduyoye, who stated this in a chat with journalists in Lagos, advised LASTMA officers on the road to be safety-conscious while carrying out their duty of enforcing traffic laws.

He said the call had become necessary since LASTMA officers were not wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) on the road.

The LASTMA chief urged the officers to work with the consciousness that members of the public were watching and monitoring them.

He said: “It is very difficult to understand how we are trying to prevent people from killing themselves by violating the stay-at-home order and some still do not understand the implications for them and their loved ones.

“So, why we are doing the things we are doing, let us remember that people are watching, people are looking, people are recording and they are reporting.

“So, let us be extremely careful as we go ahead to make sure that residents of Lagos do not endanger themselves on the road.

“LASTMA officers should not also endanger themselves.”
