Popular media personality Yeni Kuti has taken to social media to register her displeasure following her partner, Theo Lawson’s encounter with some officials of the Lagos State Waste Management Authority (LAWMA).
Kuti in a post shared on her official Instagram page explained that her man was stopped on his way to the Badaru area of Lagos.
Lawson was accosted by an official who faulted him for moving around with an unauthorized wastebasket in the state.
In the video, the official was seen displaying the said basket as he pointed out that it is registered to Ekiti state. According to him, Lawson should have been with a wastebasket registered to Lagos state.
