Lagos govt impounds 15 tankers parked along Oshodi-Apapa Expressway


Operatives of Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) on Thursday during enforcement operations impounded 15 tankers parked indiscriminately along 2nd Rainbow down to Mile 2 Bridge, Oshodi -Apapa Expressway, Lagos.

A press statement released by the Director, Public Affairs and Enlightenment Department of LASTMA, Adebayo Taofiq, confirmed that the enforcement operation was carried out on the directives of the Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Transportation, Sola Giwa.

It was further confirmed that some of the impounded tankers were apprehended inside Mile 2 Estates after investigations revealed that some of them now parked indiscriminately, thereby causing serious traffic for motorists coming out from the Estates.

According to Peter Gbejemede, LASTMA Director of Operations, the enforcement exercise was in accordance with the Law and would be continuous until zero tolerance is achieved on illegal/ indiscriminate parking across the State.

The Special Adviser has, therefore, urged motorists to collaborate with the government by informing LASTMA of any broken down or abandoned trailer/truck via the Agency hotlines; 08100565860, 08129928515 & 08129928593.
