An official of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), recently landed himself in trouble after he was caught violating the very rules he was employed to uphold.
According to a social media user identified as Raimi Ismail, the officer was accosted by some concerned road users after he was spotted driving against traffic along the Oworo area of the state.
Ismail begged the question as to why officials should be caught violating the rules when common citizens strive to adhere to laid down rules.
In a series of videos shared by him, the officer, in his LASTMA uniform, could be seen tightly restrained by an older man, while another made several attempts to capture his face on camera.

Ismail also noted that the two men who were bent on apprehending the officers appeared to be politicians.
"As seen in the video, some two old men perceived to be politicians held one of the drivers because others reversed and ran away after causing traffic for minutes," he said.
