Fashola arrests policeman riding Okada on Highway

Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, South West, Nigeria on Thursday ordered the arrest of a policeman riding a motorcycle on the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the governor spotted the policeman when his convoy was passing on the Ikeja section of the expressway.

Policemen in the governor`s convoy effected the arrest and immediately took him away in their van.

Fashola later told newsmen that the arrest was to serve as a deterrent to those who felt that they were above the law and so could break the state`s laws.

He added that the arrested policeman would be handed over to the state`s Commissioner of Police for prosecution.

It will be recalled that the state Traffic Law made on August 2nd prohibits the operations of motorcycles and tricycles on the Lagos-Abeokuta Express road and 474 other roads in Lagos.
