HIGHWAY CROSSING: LASG Arrests 46 Over Failure To Use Pedestrian Bridges

Pedestrian Bridges

Operatives of the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps have arrested 46 persons in Oshodi Oke and Ile Epo areas of Lagos for crossing the highway without using the pedestrian bridges.

The state Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, made this known in a post on his X handle on Tuesday.

The caption reads, “46 persons were earlier today arrested by the operatives of Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps (KAI) #LAGESCOfficial for not using the pedestrian bridge and crossing the highway in Oshodi Oke and Ile Epo. They have been charged to court for prosecution.

“A lady also arrested for not using the pedestrian bridge, who assaulted and tore the uniform of an official of KAI at Ile Epo Bus Stop, has been sentenced to four months imprisonment. #ZeroToleranceLagos #CleanerLagos”

Sixty-three persons were arrested on Friday for crossing the highway without using the pedestrian bridge and for engaging in street trading.

“Apples Bite” reported in February that the Lagos State Government urged residents to make use of pedestrian bridges as it described the crossing of major highways in the state by pedestrians as an offence.

It added that any defaulter caught will be prosecuted.
