LASTMA officer in Lagos battered by hoodlums

Hoodlums on Friday evening attacked Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA) officer, Ola Oyeshina, who was  in the course of sanitizing the Iganmu-Sifax axis of the Apapa access road.

A large stone was hauled at him, knocking him down immediately. He fell but was immediately evacuated to Area “B” Police headquarters where ACP Bayo Sulaimon ordered the detention of two of his attackers who were later arrested, while a letter of medical referral was issued by the police for medical attention on the victim.

Owing to the trauma, Oyeshina was immediately referred to LUTH from Randle Hospital, Surulere.

The Vice Chairman of the Federal Government Task Team on the restoration of order at Apapa, Comrade Kayode Opeifa, said he was with the victim at the Emergency Section of LUTH where he was being attended to.

It is not the first time that LASTMA officials have been harassed, attacked or killed by hoodlums at Apapa.
