The heartbreaking moment a LASTMA officer dangerously pushed off an old driver, was captured on camera.
In the video posted on social media by one Onadiran on Instagram, the incident reportedly happened at Iyana Oworo, Lagos and the old man was reported to have entered into a commercial lane before he was arrested by the officials for infringement.
He however begged for his release, before one of the officials reportedly summoned a man reported to be their head. The ‘head’ was however adamant while being appeased by the old driver and other passers-by.
He eventually pushed the man so hard that he fell hard against a wall
Onadiran who recorded the incident wrote:
This is happening now at iyana oworo bustop. This old man enter the commercial lane without knowing he was not to pass there and from no where the lastma official just came to arrest him and immediately the passengers with the old man began to beg him and the lastma official said no problem and never to do that again.
But from no where, one man called one of the their head just came and insisted that they should carry the motor inside but the old man began to beg him and the lastma pushed the old man away and insisted that the vehicle be park inside.This power that Sanwolu has given this lastma official is this how they will be using it. #tundeednut#1mimnotusing
