The Lagos government says it has arrested and prosecuted no fewer than 219 persons for crossing expressways in different parts of the state in March.

The spokesperson for Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps, Lukman Ajayi, said this on Tuesday.

Mr Ajayi said the people were arrested at Oshodi, Dopemu, Ikeja, Ikorodu Road, Ketu, and Ojota.

He said the arrest would continue if the people did not obey simple rules that would save lives.

The spokesperson wondered why some people, including parents, would take children to cross a 10-lane-expressway where there were pedestrian bridges.

Mr Ajayi called on the residents, particularly parents, to advise their wards against crossing the expressways.

He said the agency would be committed to saving lives by enforcing laws.
