Bus driver allegedly breaks the head of a LASTMA officer with a pestle


The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), has condemned an attack on its official, Mr. Kosoko Razak, by a suspected commercial driver of an unpainted Suzuki Minibus with registration number AAA 693 YC at Jakande in Lekki, Lagos State.



In a statement issued on Tuesday, by the General Manager, LASTMA, Mr. Olajide Oduyoye, said the suspect later identified as Fred Onwuche, was stopped and arrested for not using a seat belt while driving.

The incident resulted in a vicious attack on the officer with a pestle and the officer was injured. “The brutish attack on the officer by the suspect is totally condemnable and uncalled for.


The way and manner it was carried out, it was like a premeditated attempt to kill the officer. We must, therefore, send a strong signal to others like the attacker by ensuring that the culprit is punished to the full extent of the law,” he said..


Rasaq was quickly rushed to the hospital for emergency medical treatment while Onwuche was arrested and taken to Ilasan Police Division for further investigation and prosecution.[Swipe for GRAPHIC content]
