LASTMA recovers pump-action rifle in impounded vehicle, driver flees
A pump-action rifle has been discovered inside an unregistered Honda car impounded by personnel of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) for driving against traffic.
The general manager of LASTMA, Bolaji Oreagba, said in a statement by the agency’s spokesperson, Taofiqq Adebayo, that the car was impounded on Thursday.
Mr Oreagba said the black Honda car was apprehended by the patrol team of the agency while driving against traffic around Sango-Tedo, Abijo GRA, on the Lagos-Epe expressway.
According to him, when the driver noticed that the gun had been sighted inside his car, he took to his heels.
The general manager said the car and recovered gun had been handed over to the divisional police officer at Ilasan for further investigation.
Mr Oreagba appealed to public members to be security conscious and report any suspicious movement within their environment to security agencies.
