The General Manager of LASTMA Mr. Bolaji Oreagba who confirmed the arrest and the impounding of the unregistered vehicle (Black Honda), added that the vehicle was apprehended by the patrol team of the Agency while driving against traffic (one-way) around Sango-Tedo inward Abijo G.R.A Along Lagos-Epe Expressway.
However, according to the General Manager “In no time that the owner/driver of the unregistered impounded vehicle (Honda) noticed that the gun (Pump Action) had been sighted inside his car, he immediately took to his heel and was nowhere to be found anymore”
Mr. Oreagba further disclosed that Police men attached to LASTMA officers on routine patrol around Lagos-Epe Expressway were immediately alerted about the incident for confirmation.
“The unregistered impounded vehicle (Honda car) with the recovered gun had been handed over to the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Ilasan Police Station for further investigations.
Mr Oreagba, however, appealed to members of the public to be security conscious during the yuletide period and admonished them to report any suspected strange movement within their environment to any nearby security agent of government.
