The Lagos police command on Saturday said 482 motorcycles seized from riders were crushed for ‘contravening’ traffic laws across the state.

A statement signed by the police spokesperson in Lagos, Adekunle Ajisebutu, disclosed that 482 motorbikes were crushed at Alausa Secretariat, Ikeja.

The Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, who was present during the crushing exercise said the process has been on since the enforcement started.

According to him, the exercise was only now done publicly to convince Lagosians that the seized motorcycles were being crushed contrary to insinuations they were “being sold and recycled.”

Mr Odumosu warned erring motorcycle operators plying restricted areas and those violating other traffic laws or using motorcycles for criminal activities in the state to have a change of mind or face the legal consequences.

The commissioner said the crushing exercise will be a continuous one to discourage people from trampling upon the law, and reiterate the determination of the police to enforce the state laws.
