Court Jails Two For Driving Against Traffic
Mr. Abdulrasheed Maiyaki, a 35-year-old man from Kogi State, was sentenced to 100 days imprisonment without the option of fine for driving against traffic.
The other person, Mr. Tunde Mukaila, 35, who allegedly assaulted government officials in the course of their duties, was sentenced to one year in prison.
It was learnt that Maiyaki was arrested by the task force officials at Mangoro, on the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway on January 17, 2013.
Mukaila was also accused of damaging public property, apart from beating up the government officials.
Chairman, Lagos State Taskforce on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit, Mr. Bayo Sulaiman, said the punishment would serve as a deterrent to other motorists.
He said, "The task force would continue to arrest those who violate government's law. And those who think they can assault government officials and go scot-free should have a rethink."
