We’ll pros£cute film and skit makers who use our uniform without approval — LASTMA warns

The management of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA, has warned skit and film makers to desist from the use of it’s uniform and kits without approval, saying, henceforth, offenders  would be arrested and prosecuted.

Speaking in a statement on Friday, August 11, the General Manager of LASTMA, Mr Bolaji Oreagba, frowned at the dem£aning manner in which movie and skit makers portray LASTMA institution in their movies and skits, using the uniform without recourse to the Section 79 of the Crimin@l Law of Lagos State 2015 which crimin@lize such unauthorized use.

According to him, “Film or skit makers who portray as LASTMA Officer without applying for, and being duly issued a permit letter for such portrayals, should desist with immediate effect or face the full wrath of the Law.”

He believes that such sanity in movies production, regulation of possession and usage of LASTMA uniform would surely curb proliferation of LASTMA kits, uniforms and accoutrements in the society.

“We implore National Association of Nigeria Theatre Arts Practitioners (NANTA) and other affliated bodies to warn their members as anyone caught using LASTMA uniform without an approved permit would be prosecuted,” he added.
