Sanwo-Olu

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Monday vowed to prosecute the killers of an officer of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA, Ola Ganiyu Oyeshina.

The Governor who was at the home of the late Oyeshina, Oyeshina, 34, an orphan, who hailed from Osun State, was quite bitter in the manner he met his sudden end last Saturday after an attack on him by two trailer drivers in Sifax-Iganmu area of Apapa.

Sanwo-Olu, who led members of the State Executive Council to commiserate with the family of Oyeshina, was angry at the killing and warned that government would not condone any form of disobedience to the laws of the State.

The Governor, who expressed his displeasure over the gruesome killing, describing the incident as unfortunate and a wake-up call to all Lagosians.

He said the Government would “thoroughly prosecute” the arrested culprits to send a clear signal to those who have penchant for attacking law enforcement agents in the line of duty.

He wondered why some members of the public would take pride in brutalising those working to make the society better and safe, vowing to make Lagos inhabitable for those inclined to disobeying the state’s traffic laws.

Sanwo-Olu warned that government would not sit back and watch motorists or anyone or group of people willfully break laws or inflict injuries on State officials.

The governor said: “In the last 48 hours, we’ve had heavy brutality on men of LASTMA who were doing their work. We’ve had people whose legs have been amputated in the last 48 hours whilst on the assignment that was given to them to bring about enforcement of our laws and orders.

“I think this is the level at which we need to make this very stern warning that we will not stop at ensuring that we implement and enforce our laws not minding which force is involved. Lagos will not condone people that will not obey our laws.”

He added: “We cannot be condoning reckless killing and sending our young men to early grave. This government, certainly will not stand for that.”

“We are using this opportunity to tell people that Lagos wants to remain secured and safe for all of us.”

Members of the State Executive Council, including the Deputy Governor, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, were part of the delegation that visited Oyeshina family house in Surulere.

Commissioner for Special Duties, Dr. Wale Ahmed, led a short prayer session held for the deceased.
