//Ambode Orders Traffic Law Enforcement, Increases Mobile Courts

The Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, has ordered the full enforcement of the state traffic law to bring sanity on Lagos roads. He also ordered the state Attorney General and the Ministry of Justice to increase the number of mobile courts in the state to 20 to summarily prosecute traffic offenders.

While lamenting the recent killing of an official of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, Rotimi Adeyemo, the governor asked that his family be compensated with N10m. Ambode spoke on Sunday after a session with LASTMA leadership and heads of other security agencies in the state at the LASTMA head office in Oshodi.

“For Lagosians, it is very clear that government will not continue to fold its arms and allow our officers to continue to be in areas of danger. First, I will appeal to all of you that we must obey traffic laws. Secondly, we cannot turn this state into a state of lawlessness. So, from this moment onward, all our security agencies and also all the officers that are concerned have been directed to discipline any traffic offender that is arrested.
